Battle of the worlds

(Il pianeta degli uomini spenti)


A gigantic meteorite that has wandered in outer space for several years threatens to enter a collision course with Earth. To avoid this announced catastrophe, a group of scientists call professor Benson, a famous astronomer and militant ecologist. The former throws in a series of calculations and predicts that the celestial body is in fact a planet that should stop its race close to the Earth. Authorities don't listen to him and decide to send two rockets in the direction of the star. The team of astronauts then witnesses a phenomenon as strange as it is worrisome: a fleet of flying saucers coming directly to Earth... (Correction Luiz)
