A scientist has a theory that there is no gravitational force, instead, everything is held in place by magnetism. He builds a machine to prove his theory and points it at the moon. Unfortunately, this causes ocean levels to rise so high that his building is submerged and he drowns trying to shut off the machine without damaging it. A brave major from a nearby military base has no such scruples and he wrecks the machine, thus saving the world.
