The plot for this story is based on a 1950 short story by Poul Anderson
, "Flight to Forever", where time travelers can only move forward, unable to find a time where movement backwards is possible. They eventually travel through to the end of time and witness the rebirth of the universe and the earth before returning to what is their own time. See more
