      • Narrator: For years Man has looked at Mars with the one hope that someday he could travel to the one body in the Solar System where there are some indications of life. He has asked himself the questions, "Is there life there?" "Are the canals of Mars man-made?" "Can Man live there?" Only a manned spaceship landing on Mars could answer these questions. This is a story of the future, when a group of dedicated men risk their lives on the first flight to the red planet Mars.

      • Dr. Morrow: I want to start studying those canals and the polar icecaps.
        Captain Nichols: Doctor, every minute we wait here means that much less propellant to get home on.
        Dr. Morrow: Getting home? Did we spend all this time and effort and money, then sit cooped up in this spaceship for 237 days? All this only to turn and run for home at the first little problem that we encounter?
        Major Devery: Well, it's not so little, doctor. It's literally a matter of life and death for all of us.
        Dr. Morrow: Did you think this trip was going to be all peaches and cream? Our purpose is scientific, our goal is to conquer the universe that we live in. What are a few lives, even yours and mine, when we stand on the brink of the greatest discoveries that Man ever made?
