NOAH'S ARK PRINCIPLE, THE

Sometime in the future ... a gigantic European - American meteorological research station "The Florida Arklab" circles the earth with a crew of two men. Equipped with high-tech machinery, Max Marek, scientist, and Billy Hayes, chief technician, are in charge of global weather forecasting and climate control. Realizing that the radiation to which the capsule is exposed has become incalculable, scientists and politicians on earth are inclined to shut the station down. When a local conflict in the Middle East gets out of control and the American and Russian fleets converge in the Indian Ocean, the CIA decides to exploit the station's abilitities for military purposes. Marek, realizing the devasting effects this climatic manipulation would cause for large areas on earth, - without the knowledge of his colleague Hayes - tries to sabotage the computer program ...
