* David Brin's "What Continues, What Fails..." (short story, science fiction)

Rather muddled story with a lot of jargon about black holes. A pair of women researchers of far future have figured a way of looking inside a black hole, & have seen a separate universe there! Plus a parallel track of one of the pair bearing a child (clone in her own womb) - highly wanted because her "tenaciousness" genes are in high demand. Plus description of the many wonders of this far future.

Collected in.

  1. David Hartwell & Kathryn Cramer (Ed)'s "The Ascent of Wonder: The Evolution of Hard SF".

Fact sheet.
