Two countries race to have the first successful landing on Mars.
Roger Corman bought the US rights to this film, re-edited it and released it as "Battle Beyond the Sun".
At the beginning of the movie (11:17) South Hemis has launched a rocket going to a space station carrying two astronauts. One of them is Dr Albert Gordon. Dr Gordon's wife Ruth also works on the project at ground control. Just after the launch Ruth is shown writing in what is likely a log book and at the top of the page the header reads North Hemis Space Agency instead of South Hemis.
Released (by Roger Corman) in the USA as "Battle Beyond the Sun". This version was recut and also added new footage directed by a young Francis Ford Coppola. In this version, of course, all Soviet propaganda has been dropped.
