This is an imaginative 'time machine' thriller about scientists and technical support thrusting themselves 107 years into the future. This is one of those typical mid 60s sci-fi flicks complete with mole looking inhabitants and of course, female space travelers fitted in skin tight pants. Well worth the backward look into the future.
Among the time travelers are: Preston Foster, Philip Carey, John Hoyt, Delores Wells and Steve Franken.
