Space Station

J. G. Ballard

Report on an Unidentified Space Station (short story)


Discovered adrift and apparently deserted by a group of astronauts, the station resists all attempts to define the limits of its shape and size.


This story is almost entirely about attempts to determine the size and nature of the station upon which it takes place. Estimates are constantly adjusted upward in exponential jumps, metres become miles, miles become years, expeditions to find and measure become endless, explorers do not return, the concept of the unknowable, the infinite becomes deeply alarming when applied to a built structure.
