Millions Of Years Into The Future
By Denny E. Marshall
The time machine is completed. The
professor and a few invited quests board with limited provisions. Once
the hatch is sealed, the professor moves the dial into place and locks.
Chris who the professor had doubts about bringing along moves around in
the cramped quarters. He accidentally bumps and breaks the level,
jamming the locking mechanism. The setting is struck at maximum
forward. Attempts to move the level back are futile. While out the
ports all could view the next tens of millions of years of time. They
ran out of food and water in a few weeks and starved.
