Summary (IBList user synopsis):

What will the universe be like at the end, when the last of humanity is long gone, when galaxies either compress to shrunken shadows of their former glorious selves, or fling apart in tenuous wisps; when the last stars burn out, when all the heat and light is nearly gone? A researcher experimenting on anti-gravity gets a firsthand look when the coil he is utilizing warps time instead of gravity.

Bleak and cold, "Night" still has the ability to send a shiver up any reader's spine and is a perfect example of why John W. Campbell has been called the father of modern science fiction.

Published in Astounding Science Fiction.
