synopsis
Financiers attempt to exploit the resources of the moon. They magnetize a mountain in the Sahara to pull the satellite into close proximity of the earth. However, through miscalculation, their observatory is drawn from the earth to a lunar valley from which they later escape, descending to earth via parachute.
