After a collision with a comet, a nearly 8km wide piece of the asteroid "Orpheus" is heading towards Earth. If it will hit it will cause a incredible catastrophe which will probably extinguish mankind.

Their only chance to save the world is to join forces with the USSR who have also launched such an illegal satellite. But will both governments agree?
