Heaven Photographed by Hubble Telescope - by Rachel Jensen

This one was very cute in a way that I personally do not like.  I miss a classical protagonist/antagonist setup.  I miss a classical conflict/resolution.  And I can't buy into the story either - if heaven WAS found - it would be a huge game changer - not just a fifteen minutes of fame kind of thing.

An interesting story, indeed. I don't know if John's theory is right -- whether the discovery of Heaven by the Hubble would be a 15-minutes of fame thing or not. Considering how blase we are -- now -- about space flight, it's possible. A game-changer? Could be. Hard to predict, of course.

But I think the story is a good one. True, it doesn't have the traditional protagonist-antagonist setup. But everything doesn't have to. The idea of this story was interesting to me because of course the idea of Heaven is at the base of a long-running controversy -- is it real? is it not? etc etc.

So thanks to Rachel Jensen for spinning a story that is thought-provoking. Hope we see her work again.

Thanks to Jean and John for their comments. Yes, this story WAS different from the usual good guy/bad guy yarn. It DID give a different viewpoint of what would happen if suddenly heaven was proven rather than aspired. That's why I found it interesting and one of the reasons I chose it. I understand that, for some, it's not their cup of tea. Drink it anyway--different flavors are good for you.

It's amusing the  idea  of the tale, indeed Smiley...anyway,I  think that the farther  in space  some  future space telescopes  get  and  the  hotter  spots they may have a glimpse of, maybe  a sort of hot hell ( not  heaven ) , that is  the Big  Bang...that would be a nice shot, of course...eh,eh Cool

Been too long away from this message board and it feels good to be back - and to be able to say that I truly enjoyed "Heaven".

Thanks for welcoming me back, Gary. I am sure you know that Anotherealm is close to my heart and I am honored to count its editors - past (hi, Jean) and present - as my friends. I have been longing to submit a story to Anotherealm again. For the last year or so, the situation has been that all my unpublished stories were below the 1000 words mark required by Anotherealm. May be, soon...

Below 1000 words is ok.  :)

The sign says not over 1000 words for the contests.

Tight prose is always welcomed.

Okay! One story, courtesy Webbie, will be winging its way shortly to Gary.

And thanks, Jean. I plan not to keep away from this board. Glad to see that other anotherealmers are also drifting back here (C.N. Pitts, for instance).
