My wife keenly observed a flaw in the story. During almost the entire forty year journey, it is planned that the astronaut is to exist in a state of suspended animation. By releasing himself from that state after just six months, he would need to eat during those years. It is unlikely the ship had enough resources on board for him to survive!
- You could argue that if they have the technology to suspend animation, they may have the technology to generate matter out of energy. Unlikely? yes. This IS the Twilight Zone, though! 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:44, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
The plot twist at the end seems similar to O. Henry's short story The Gift of the Magi. Any secondary sources making this comparison, or noting that the story was inspiration in some way? Postdlf 23:27, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Very very similar to a Corwainer Smith story. http://www.webscription.net/chapters/1416521461/1416521461___6.htm —Preceding unsigned comment added by E Guano (talk • contribs) 05:21, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
If the destination is 141 light-years away and the spacecraft travels at 70 times of the speed of light, doesn't it take 2 years to reach the destination and 4 years for a round trip? Or maybe the math is different in the twilight zone? 無聲 (talk) 12:05, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
