Ineffective sci-fi outing starring Hubschmid as an astronaut sent on a joint US, USSR, and British rocket launch from Australia. In space, something goes wrong, forcing Hubschmid to abandon ship and return to Earth. Unfortunately, the rocket continues on its path and smashes into the

sun, sending asteroids spinning toward Earth and causing the face of the planet to shift. While the populace tries to contend with tidal waves, heat waves, and earthquakes, scientists try to figure out a way to prevent the asteroids from slamming into an already chaotic planet. They eventually

talk all the world governments into making a combined effort to send atomic missiles into space to destroy the oncoming asteroids.
