Two Ways To The End Of The Universe
In The Triumph Of Time by James Blish, a planet flies at many times light speed to the place from which the monobloc exploded to become the groups of metagalaxies that still spiral back toward that center. By occupying the Metagalactic Center, the planet will temporarily survive a collision between this universe and its anti-matter counterpart and a specially prepared group of "Survivors" will each be able to create a new universe from his or her own body.
Would you prefer to be in Anderson's spaceship or on Blish's planet?
