Summary :

Many science fiction stories involve faster than light travel. In "Time Fuze", mankind has just discovered the principles behind building a drive that propels a ship at many times light speed. When they attempt to visit the closest star, Alpha Centuari A, it goes nova. Never one to pass up an opportunity, they study it for several weeks, but remain confused as to the reasons for the sudden explosion. On the return trip, a theory is proposed that might explain how a stable star like Alpha Centuari A could go nova, and the implications are horrifying...
