    1. SF Grand master Robert A for Astounding Heinlein first published his short work Universe in the May edition of Astounding Science Fiction in 1941 In 1963, this story and its sequel Common Sense were put together into the expanded novel Orphans of the Sky.The idea of a generational ship may not have originated with Heinlein, but he makes early and good use of the template Essentially, a ship has been constructed to travel from Earth to a distant planet Travelling at less than light speed, the veh [...]

    2. Un relato igual de difrutable 100% Heinlein gil pero inteligente, con variedad de g neros incluidos y personajes con garra, as como una atm sfera lograda e historia con mensaje de fondo en la cual te sumerges enseguida y de posterior digesti n cr tica apreciable sin haber le do los anteriores en l nea temporal dentro de su gran obra maestra Historia del futuro Sin embargo, su lectura, no ser completa y totalmente apreciable sin sos, ya que la dimensi n y alcance se analiza y correlaciona el tipo [...]

    4. Book 24 out of 21 for Heinlein s Future Perfect series yes, I know that looks wrong, but that the official way to write it Universe and it s sequel Common Sense were written and released in 1941 It is an amazing scathe of religion, as well as the first written story of Generation Ships people living and reproducing on the ship, as the ship will take many lifetimes to reach it s destination.The book itself reminded me of Louis Lowry s The Giver , only better and written 50 years prior The story i [...]

    5. Universe is a novella that tells the story of the population of a massive generational ship, who have long since lost any true grasp of the true nature of the artificial world they live in A young explorer and scientist is captured by one of the mutants that lives close to the center of the ship, and discovers the true purpose of their enclosed world.

    6. Fun short read about a generation of people who have forgotten where their forefathers have come from and believe the ship they are on IS the universe.

    7. I was disappointed to learn that this was a short story precursor to the full novel Orphans of the Sky, but not advertised as such where I found it I also thought the overall production of the story was poor.

    8. There is a seed of something interesting here This is an early example of a now common science fiction trope a lost generational space ship, its inhabitants unaware of their original purpose, with science taking on religious trappings Ultimately, the story didn t work for me because the characters in this novella are either too one dimensional or unlikeable.
