Charles Brubaker is the astronaut leading NASA&#39s first manned mission to Mars. Seconds before the launch, the entire team is pulled from the capsule and the rocket leaves earth unmanned much to Brubaker&#39s anger. The head of the programme explains that the life support system was faulty and that NASA can&#39t afford the publicity of a scratched mission. The plan is to fake the Mars landing and keep the astronauts at a remote base until the mission is over, but then investigative journalist Robert Caulfield starts to suspect something.
