Not Enabled Word Wise: Not Enabled Screen Reader: Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: The story ends at the break of an overcast, gray morning, with Leslie's apartment becoming an island among the raging flood waters, but with the narrator rather optimistically wondering "if our children would colonize Europe, or Asia, or Africa.
In , the story was made into an episode of The Outer Limits television series written by Brad Wright. A prototype faster-than-light spacecraft crewed by two men is sent to the Sirius system, known from robotic exploration to include an earthlike world. In orbit around the world, they notice that one of the continents has a thin, strange border all the way round its coastline, which radiates a low heat and appears black in visible light.

After exploring the edges of the smaller continents, and discovering that the ocean hosts only one lifeform—a single species of algae that they think might have been genetically engineered —they decide to explore the large continent with the border. When they discover just what the black border is—a seething mass of trapped humans with very dark skin, feeding off the algae and each other—the result is the death, by suicide, of one of the crew, and the self-destruction of the ship by the traumatized survivor upon his return to Earth—and a chilling reminder that there may be great danger waiting for further human explorers.
The story ends on a hopeful note, with the project leader believing that Earth can help the humans at Sirius, and a fearful one, with the crewman then speculating that the humans were seeded by carnivorous aliens as food animals. I was playing with some preliminary ideas, and one of these — the "Blind Spot" effect of this form of faster-than-light travel — was later incorporated into Known Space. But it's a different timeline entirely. Similar statements hold for " One Face " Hair styles and human colony worlds from this story later entered Known Space; but the story does not belong to that universe.
Galaxy Science Fiction , October The man team setting up the first base on Mars experience tragedy when a murder is committed. Carter, the murderer, in the process of escaping on one of the transportation buggies crashes through the plastic bubble which holds in the base's atmosphere in an attempt to kill everyone else; however, it fails, and he is soon chased by Alf, the brother of the victim on another buggy.
The lethal chase, with the two combatants in constant radio communication, slowly reveals the community stresses which resulted in the murder. Alf wants to kill Carter in revenge for his brother, while Carter wishes the same and to try once more to destroy the base This story appeared originally on Galaxy Science Fiction , in December A sequel to "How the Heroes Die". Muller, a smuggler with a cargo of precious magnetic monopoles , attempts to use Mars the 'hole' of the title; to spacers, planets are merely gravity wells to be avoided if possible as a means to whip his ship to a new orbit that will enable him to escape the customs authorities who are chasing him.
His plan fails, and he crashlands, close to the now-abandoned base. Over the next few days, he explores the ruins and finds out the terrible story of what happened. Unfortunately, he himself suffers the same fate as the original colonists—all of which he commits to his log, which is later recovered. Niven's use of the term " gravity well " in the story is the third use of the phrase in science fiction recorded by Oxford English Dictionary researchers.
The two Mars stories do belong to " Known Space " and they are specifically referred to and to some degree influence the plot of Protector , which takes place a long time later. Also, the failure of Mars colonization as depicted here contributes to the generally held opinion in that future history that planets at least in the Solar System are virtually worthless and it is asteroids which are the truly desirable real property. Galaxy Science Fiction , June During a routine hyperspace jump, an accident involving a small meteoroid striking into the machinery causes the ship to be trapped in a stasis until billions of years have passed.
They emerge in the Solar System 's far future, at which time the sun has become a greenish- white dwarf and Earth has lost its atmosphere and become a tidally locked world; i. The ship's main computer has also been damaged, so its decision to have the captain replaced by one of the passengers to maximize survival causes disagreement.
