Synopsis: Fay Valpa, Research Chemist for the family company Valheil Cosmetics, has invented a spray which stops you from aging. The Board of the ailing company decides to escape impending financial disaster by having an asteroid built, charging it up with the spray and then retiring to a place "where no one gets sick, no one gets gets old and nobody dies." They engage J.P., Space Engineer (secretly working for their rivals) and he agrees to make the world in a very short time-scale in return for marriage with Fay and the secret formula. Convinced that he cannot achieve their deadline they sign the contract. There are tense days ahead as both sides attempt to outdo each other in the race to avoid bankruptcy, to double-cross each other and to claim ownership of the "world" and the magic formula.
