Storyline

Headstrong, ambitious, sometimes unscrupulous businessman Wayne Crowder, an entrepreneurial capitalist, has ambitions to build a spaceship that is capable of interplanetary travel. Despite warnings about the foolhardiness of his undertaking, Crowder is determined to follow through especially when a meek scientist named Wilkins shares his ideas about utilizing magnetism as a propulsion device. After clearing Earth's gravitational pull, Crowder feels the theory has been proven and wishes to return to Earth but finds out he has signed up for more than he bargained for.
