Spies discover that the Red Chinese have built a "doomsday machine" capable of destroying the surface of the Earth, and that they plan to use it within a matter of days. Meanwhile, Project Astra, a manned U.S. space mission to Venus, is in its final hours before launch when it is taken over by the military and nearly half of its all-male crew is replaced by women. The reason for this becomes apparent when, shortly after Astra leaves orbit, the Earth is completely destroyed in a global cataclysm! Is the human race doomed? What dangers and wonders await the crew of the Astra on their journey to Venus? Written by

This film uses several special effects shots from Gorath
(1962) (including most of the exterior shots of space flight involving the ship and other space stations). Many of the other shots of both the spacecraft (showing a completely different craft than featured in the "Yosei Gorasu" footage) and interior shots of television screens are taken from The Wizard of Mars
(1965). See more
