Genre
science fiction
Characters
Professor Harlow; Arthur; Katey Mulrooney (referred to but not shown); Pat Flanagan; Mike Flanagan; Tom Flanagan
Synopsis
Professor Harlow explains to his assistant, Arthur, his theory of how wars begin and how they escalate. Utilizing his theory to bring about an end to war on Earth, he fakes an attack on Earth from Mars by destroying the town of Middleburg with an atom bomb, killing 300 people. Claiming the rocket came from Mars, he convinces the United Nations to retaliate with hundreds of super rockets. With all countries united against a common enemy, all wars on Earth come to an end. The attack on Mars is successful, until Mars sends its own "rain of rocket bombs."

After ten years work, a noted British physicist creates a time-traveling machine, intending to go back in time to prevent the sinking of the ill-fated ship, The Titanic.

However, by strange quirk of fate, George causes the very disaster he went back in time to prevent, but also saved himself as a boy before he died saving him.
