A hostile planet…from outer space hurtles toward Earth on a collision course!
Astounding! Awesome! Fantastic!

A runaway asteroid dubbed “The Outsider” mysteriously begins orbiting the Earth and threatens it with lethal flying saucers. —Gabe Taverney (

A stray planet on a collision course with Earth instead takes orbit around our blue marble. What seems like a dead planet suddenly launches a fleet of flying saucers which attack our space fleets. —Humberto Amador

Men & women in rocket ships near Mars gasp “Inverting… course… 180… degrees…” in high-gee maneuvers. Meanwhile, the offbeat scientist (Claude Rains) shouts at the labcoats who have invaded his greenhouse (where he spends his time tending flowers and scribbling math in chalk on the pots): “Back you madmen! I have one advantage over all of you! Calculus!” Sine waves and music are eventually used to talk to “the outsider.” —David Van Brink (

A sci-fi thriller about scientists trying to stop a collision of an alien planet with the earth.

Plot: Spoilers?
Dr. Fred Steele (Umberto Orsini) and Eve Barnett (Maya Brent) work together at an astronomical station on a bucolic island. Steele has just had his request for a transfer approved, and he and Eve look forward to leaving the island and getting married. However, their budding romance is quickly put on hold as the station’s scientists learn they must deal with a rogue planet—”The Outsider”—that has entered the solar system, and which is on a collision course with Earth. The brilliant but cantankerous Professor Benson (Claude Rains), living in an adjacent greenhouse with his dog Gideon, predicts that the Outsider will not strike the Earth but will simply make a close pass—a prediction that no other scientist will endorse. Meanwhile, a military base on Mars encounters the stray planet on its approach to Earth, and Commander Robert Cole and his wife Cathy quickly travel to the island outpost from Mars to help with the effort.

The base scientists are elated when the Outsider passes the earth at a distance of 95,000 miles, just as Benson predicted. But Benson himself is stunned when the Outsider takes up an orbit around Earth. He concludes that the Outsider must be controlled by an alien intelligence, and he calls upon the world’s scientific governing council to destroy it without delay.

Against Benson’s wishes, an expedition is launched to make a close study of the new planet. As the exploratory spacecraft approach, a number of disc-shaped alien spaceships emerge from beneath the planet’s surface, destroying the Earth vessels.

The phantom planet begins spiraling inward toward the Earth, creating hurricanes and storms, and the beginning of the end appears to be near. Professor Benson discovers that the alien ships are computer-controlled, and he devises a way to seize control of them from the Outsider. Benson is given the opportunity to join an expedition to the Outsider, to learn something of its underground base. Meanwhile, a plan is hatched to launch an all-out attack against the planet, in the hope that a massive nuclear strike will break the planet apart.
