Cosmic Tales: Adventures in Far Futures

edited by T. K. F. Weisskopf

Space is full of surprises

The early days of space travel are now history. The tragic deaths, the explorers who disappeared without a trace, the many heroisms are now relegated to the pages of textbooks. The Solar System, from Mercury out to the cometary Oort Cloud, is as thorougly domesticated and familar as Arizona or California.

But other frontiers still beckoned to us, as distant, varied and infinte as the stars themselves. Humankind is poised to swarm out across the galaxy at speeds many times that of light, but still meager when set against the vast breadth of the galaxy. And once again we will relearn the ancient truth: The universe is not only stranger than we imagine — it is stranger than we can imagine.
