Carter must help an aged scientist recover his memory in time to stop a doomsday device from destroying the world. The old scientist, Dr. Thatcher, has not been the same ever since he didn't win the Nobel Peace Prize for creating a mutual assured destruction device, which fires a beam of irradiated uranium isotopes at a mirror on the moon, bouncing back at Earth to hit another target.
