He is mugged on the way home from his meeting with Mannfeldt by henchmen of the evil businessmen, commanded by an American named Turner. They steal the research which Professor Mannfeldt had entrusted to him and also burgle Helius's home, taking other valuable material. They then present him with an ultimatum: they know he is planning a voyage to the moon; either he includes them in the project or they will sabotage it and destroy his rocket. Reluctantly, Helius agrees to their terms.
After the rocket blasts off, they discover that Gustav, a young boy who has befriended Helius, is aboard as a stowaway
Last but not least and very unlikely
Once they get to the far side of the moon, Mannfeldt and Turner prove Mannnfeldt's theory that there is gold on the moon.
After the ship takes off for home, Helius discovers that Friede has decided to stay with him on the moon and they embrace passionately.

It is not the premise of the movie, but rather the science shown.
Armageddon had a low G room on Earth. It had sound in space. It had armored space shuttles with no room for fuel tanks taking on fuel!
In Volcano, the lava didn't act like lava. They were able to make a lake of lava using K-rails which do not form liquid tight joints and should have leaked like a sieve. That does not even mention the heat the guys would have been exposed to or the fact that the lava would have run out between the buildings and set the buildings on fire.
I could go on and on if I wanted to do so. The science used in the movies listed is horribly wrong.
