Certain that a nuclear war is imminent, a scientist plots to escape with his family and closest friends in an experimental spaceship to a planet eleven million miles away.
A simple story can be a good thing, if it's done right. This one sadly did not translate well to the radio drama format. It probably worked better as a TV-episode in the1960 cold war era, when it was first aired. The fear of the protagonists does not come across well as a radio drama more than 50 years later.
Too bad, since the story is very, very good.
