RAS #571 – Death Of A Spaceman

RAS #571 - Death Of A Spaceman

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have some UFO encounters sent in by listeners Terrell, and Rosalina. Terrell has a strange visitor after seeing a UFO, and Rosa watches a UFO flyby while drinking a very expensive bottle of wine. Then we have a striking story from the pages of the pulp mags about the old spaceman who faces his own mortality. We end the show with a new look at Newton and his discovery of gravity. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

Featured Story – Death of a Spaceman

Death Of A Space Man

Our featured story for this time comes from Amazing Stories Magazine March of 1954. I wrestled with this one for quite a while before deciding whether to play it or not. The subject matter is a bit rough. It tells the story of the death of a spaceman from the point of view of that very spaceman. I found it deeply profound and entertaining. It is my hope that you do as well. It is titled Death of a Spaceman and was written by Walter M. Miller, Jr.  It is read for us by Gregg Margarite.

The manner in which a man has lived is often the key to the way he will die. Take old man Donegal, for example. Most of his adult life was spent in digging a hole through space to learn what was on the other side. Would he go out the same way?
