Atomic Fire by Raymond Z. Gallun:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"Ten million years hence, the sun will be old and climatic conditions and the aspect of the heavens will have changed accordingly. Many effects will have to be taken care of. It is not absolutely impossible that the nebulas should play a part in the cosmic changes. Perhaps some dark nebula will affect the planets directly. Anything might happen in ten million years. "Atomic Fire" is definitely thought-provoking, based, as it is, on scientific possibilities."
