Astronauts on a secret mission to Mars discover that an unstoppable renegade space station is speeding toward a defenseless Earth on a deadly collision course. The scientists are faced with a horrific choice - watch helplessly as their planet is destroyed or risk their lives on a million-to-one chance to stop the impact. When every option seems exhausted, a heroic reporter makes a final attempt to save the Earth. Filmed in 1961, Assignment: Outer Space is a showcase for the groundbreaking special effects work of Caesar Peace and is one in a series of colorful space-adventure films directed by Antonio Magheriti.
Astronauts try to stop a drifting space station from colliding with planet Earth while flirting with the sexy woman aboard in this pretty good Italian science-fiction.
