The world's leading expert on telepathy, Dr. Lawton, is rushed with his assistant to a military weather station at the North Pole. The men there have suddenly become psychic. The mysterious code they're mentally receiving, Y-O-R-D, turns out to be an SOS call from an alien spaceship in the Earth's orbit.Written by

I did enjoy this. It's a story about a group of telepathic people, working at the top of the world. They are angry and depressed and bored. Because they can see each other's thoughts, they can't even play a lousy game of poker. A scientist is brought up there, along with his lab protégé, a young woman with the same abilities. While there, they receive signals from a space ship that is headed toward earth. They take it upon themselves to warn the ship about the dangers of entering the atmosphere at high speeds. Now, if there were aliens with these capabilities, you would think they would have figured out a basic scientific fact. Nevertheless, they do all they can to warn the ship.
I know these were done on the cheap, but they reintroduced the classic brain wave device that is made from a kitchen colander with wires and antennas coming out of it. When the story is most serious, we watch the unconscious young woman, frozen with that thing on her head. I was reminded of Rick Moranis in Ghostbusters and some science fiction movie where they were going to exchange the mind of one of the victims with the brain of a chicken.
