  • Doug and Tony escape the moon only to materialize in an old mine shaft in 1910, the year that Halley's Comet passed very close to earth. Many in town, including prominent scientist Professor Ainsley, believe the comet will smash into the Earth and end all life! Doug and Tony know this isn't true so their goal is to rescue miners trapped below the earth and all but abandoned in the town's panic.

  • Doug and Tony are transported to a mine shaft where two hundred miners are trapped due to a cave-in. They seek help but nobody wants to come to the Emperor Mine, believing that the world will end in a couple of hours. Doug and Tony find that it is late spring in 1910 and Halley's Comet is passing near to Earth. Furthermore the prominent Professor Ainsley believes that the comet will crash on Earth, so the world is in panic. While Tony tries to convince the locals to help the men trapped in the mine, Doug tries to prove to the scientist that he is wrong in his assumption. Meanwhile The Time Tunnel complex is in danger as it is affected by the magnetic field of the comet.
