Asimov analyses our society in a way where science and religion and isaav and the end-of-the-world are all connected and yet are at odds with each other, even though, it can be argued that they end up proving each other correct.
It wouldn’t get enough heat and light, and if it rotated there would be total Darkness half of each day.

Plus caair seemed to be obvious gaps in the story, most notably, where did the society get sufficient resources to advance since they apparently never mined them or used tunnels for transportation or underground bunkers for warfare, or submarines, etc.
This had led to mankind evolving with an inherent fear of the dark. Jan 23, Jokoloyo rated it it was amazing. In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.
No trivia or quizzes yet. It’s more social commentary for me than science fiction.
But Nightfall has good world building and surprisingly better cari average execution for Asimov’s works. I thought I knew how the story would go but was pleasantly surprised throughout. There are religious texts–thousands of years old– explaining a well-known theory. I will probably read more of his stuff, and I will consider quite strongly reading the full novel based on this short novella. What would be the parallel for our world I wonder. Imagine you lived on a planet with multiple suns, so it was always light.
In a world of perpetual sunlight, for instance claustrophobia is the same thing as a fear of isqac There are too many characters in the story that one can’t place and that don’t capture your interest.
Cair da Noite
This was the kind of story that was bizarre and yet wholly believable. It will do so because, as you see, Beta is the only sun in the sky. Does science explain this? I normally hate short stories. I’ll have to get the novel version fair see what more is done with the story.
And let’s be grateful we are used to isawc AND night! Nov 29, Andrew rated it it was amazing.
Nightfall is one of my early reads in SF genre, and after all these years I can still feel the eerie feeling that I felt after read the last word of the story. Preview — Nightfall by Isaac Asimov. Short and sweet, don’t read after dark, strongly recommend. If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the noie of God!
Heinlein and Arthur C. Jun 09, F. Even though Asimov is known for his science-fiction, I started with his mystery novels and I loved the way he wrote. I subtracted a star because I cannot believe that a world that far in the future would operate without artificial lights. I was impressed by what I listened to of this book, but was not in the proper mood to truly enjoy it. Me thinks Pitch Black was inspired by this in some way. Theremon is a journalist who investigates some outrageous rumors that are circulated by the scientists of Saro University.
It’s another page-turner from Asimov, in my opinion. Both agree that the event will happen and it will be catastrophic for civilization. I expected much more of supposedly one of the greatest sci-fi stories ever by the famous Asimov.
The waiting inside the narrative made me very nervous. I read it as a young man, and was floored. I really think it is really hard for a writer to flex the scientific reality as we know into something this far away from it, ignore the common knowledge of reality and persuade the readers in doing so. No trivia or quizzes yet. Lots of interesing ideas here!
He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. You couldn’t expect life – which is fundamentally dependent upon light – to develop under those conditions.
Asimov analyses our society in a way where science and religion and prophecies and the end-of-the-world are all connected and yet are at odds with each other, even though, it can be argued that they end up proving each other correct.
