The first space mission to Mars , Ulysse 1, is a European mission funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and William Meyer, a Swiss billionaire philanthropist.

The crew, made up of the best European astronauts and scientists, includes French , Italians and Germans, as well as Jeanne Renoir, a young psychologist who looks after the mental health of the crew on this historic mission.

After a ten-month journey, a few hours after the start of the landing process on the red planet, the European astronauts learn from the mouth of financier William Meyer that they are not the first, but that they were preceded by an American mission, that of NASA and one multinational computer company with a faster plasma-propelled ship.

Apart from an alarming video, there are no more signs of life from the American mission and the European mission decides to look for them.

Once on Mars, the European astronauts do not find Americans, but a Russian, Vladimir Komarov , the first person to die on a space mission, in the Soyuz-1 capsule in 1967.
