Thought Speed, by Len Nourse

Ann-Louse reminded me that I’d not written a F.F.F. 100 word lately. I had for my own use but had thought they were not worthy of the group. This besides being involved in my own nutrition research, myself being the test object.

Using this, holding his sister’s hand, he imagined them on an ideal planet in orbit around the sun–Proxima, the dim companion of the triple-star system, Alpha Centauri. They arrived in anticipation on Golden beach, but were immediately sized by robots where they were taken to the decontamination room and decontaminated; the process not amenable to thought speed.
