[Reading Room] Surface Tension by James Blish

One of those space ships crashes on a water planet of Tau Ceti. After a few generations, they get curious and have to break the barrier between water and the air above: the eponymous surface tension. Setting this flaws aside, I really liked the narration and the characters. It certainly feels like a golden age SF without being too pulpish. The plot is clever and thought provoking. Meta: isfdb.

Surface Tension

As collected in Blish's The Seedling Stars , it was revised to incorporate material from his earlier story "Sunken Universe", published in Super Science Stories in A human colonization ship crash-lands on a distant planet which is Earth-like but whose only landmass is completely covered in shallow puddles of water and mostly microscopic life forms. Normal humans could not survive on this planet, so the crew must genetically engineer their descendants into something that can survive. Blish coined the term pantropy to refer to this concept. They create a race of microscopic aquatic humanoids to complete their mission and colonize the planet.
