Storyline

In 2020, after the colonization of the moon, the spaceships Vega, Sirius and Capella are launched from Lunar Station 7. They are to explore Venus under the command of Professor Hartman, but an asteroid collides and explodes Capella. The leader ship Vega stays orbiting and sends the astronauts Kern and Sherman with the robot John to the surface of Venus, but they have problems with communication with Dr. Marsha Evans in Vega. The Sirius lands in Venus and Commander Brendan Lockhart, Andre Ferneau and Hans Walter explore the planet and are attacked by prehistoric animals. They use a vehicle to seek Kern and Sherman while collecting samples from the planet. Meanwhile John helps the two cosmonauts to survive in the hostile land. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Interesting old movie-
1 June 2003 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

It's no secret that until probes were sent to it in comparatively recent times, Venus was thought by the scientific community to be an earthlike planet. That isn't important, of course- the film version of H.G. Wells's THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON postulated the existence of a highly-organized society of intelligent, air-breathing creatures living inside the Moon, and that film was made in the mid-1960s. Hence, when viewed as pure fantasy, I'm willing to grant this movie artistic (and scientific) license.

Yes this one's primitive, but the Soviets didn't have much to work with. I enjoyed this film thanks to the sheer imagination that went into it.

And I've heard the comment before that the Command Ship pilot refers to "propellors." She doesn't. Her reference is to "propellants," i.e., rocket fuel.
