Zero-X, a manned exploration mission crashes during lift-off on its maiden flight. Two years later an investigative committee finally concludes sabotage, and decides to call on the services of International Rescue to oversee security at the impending second launch. The second Zero-X successfully reaches its destination, but encounters unexpected hazards, ultimately leading to another call for assistance on its return to Earth. International Rescue respond, and once again Thunderbirds are GO!

It's stated that Zero X can travel at 100,000 mph. Spacecraft sent to Mars have taken up to 9 months, which would mean 270 days. At 100,000 mph Zero X would take a shorter path, which explains the astronauts reaching Mars in 6 weeks. The VASIMR plasma engine being developed by Dr Franklin Chang Diaz could send a spacecraft to Mars in 39 days. See more
