Summary
Dr. Russell Marvin heads up Operation Skyhook, which is tasked with sending experimental rockets into the upper atmosphere. Unfortunately, all the rockets are somehow disappearing. During the final rocket launching, a flying saucer lands and the military fires upon the aliens, triggering the destruction of the installation and a cryptic warning from the aliens. In response, Dr. Marvin and his colleagues develop an anti-magnetic beam weapon to disable the flying discs. The weapon and the mettle of the populace of Washington, DC are soon put to the test, when the flying saucers attack
