    Question Searching for the name of a story

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for the name (and author) of the science-fiction story where scientists create a miniature populated world in their lab. Time is speeded up on the planet's surface and the scientists can transport down to the planet and live entire lifetimes in a few hours of our time. It was a short story or book, and I saw the story on a TV show many years ago.

    TIA,
    Tim

    Hi Soforene,

    I think you're right on the Outer Limits episode.

    However - I read a book with that story. The plot was the live(s) lived by the scientists when they transported down to the planet. The length of the planetary day was controlled by the frequency of the light/sun in the planet's environment.

    The book is really what I'm looking for.

    Thanks!

    Tim

    Nope - I read COSM a couple of years ago (but it's a good story!)
