This is the short story that inspired the novel, "Mistress of Molecules." It shows what a little logic can do in the face of an emotional crisis. Also contains opening chapters of "Mistress of Molecules."
The story concerns a human stowaway on an alien space ship. The human is trying to help the aliens who are in danger of being drawn by gravity to crash into a giant planet from which there can be no escape. The human has an idea the aliens are not willing to try because it violates their thousand-year-old traditions.

About the Author
I write science fiction, mysteries, and technothrillers about such people: Freshman Murders, The Aremac Project, Aremac Power, Jigglers, First Stringers, Second Stringers, The Hands of God, Earth's Endless Effort, and Mistress of Molecules. In them, my brilliant protagonists solve problems and learn to be happy. Links to my books may be found at
I am a charter member in the Computing Hall of Fame, but the "award" I'm most proud of is the book, The Gift of Time (Fiona Charles, ed.) written by my students and readers for my 75th birthday. Their stories make me feel I've been at least partially successful at helping smart people be happy.
