17 Jul Rocketship X-M
Astronauts (Lloyd Bridges, Osa Massen, John Emery, Noah Beery, Jr., and Hugh O’Brien), blast off to explore the moon. Because of a craft malfunction and some fuel calculations, they end up landing on Mars. On Mars, evidence of a once powerful civilization is found. The scientists determined that an atomic war destroyed most of the Martians (Who surprisingly look like humans). Those that survived, reverted to a caveman like existence.
