- Professor Brane and his crew, of Kings of Space fame, return in their spaceship to Mars to investigate the situation, to see whether they can find any inhabitants, and to try out the effect of a new insecticide.
- They find more than they have bargained for, but in spite of the dangers involved, dangers whose nature no one could have foreseen, it turns out to be a good thing for Earth that they did go back.
