A Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury

The butterfly effect is a term coined by Edward Lorenz, an American mathematician, meteorologist, and a pioneer of chaos theory (and who does NOT look like Jeff Goldblum) that essentially says that a hurricane can be influenced by the distant flapping of butterfly wings several weeks earlier. Although his research took place in the 50s, his description of the idea took place in the later 60s.

Ray Bradbury’s short story A Sound of Thunder, first published in Colliers magazine in the June 28, 1952 issue and Playboy in June 1956 deals with, and actually includes, a butterfly and most definitely explains the idea in a fantastic way better adapted to lay explanation than the good physics professor Lorenz.

Time Safari Inc., for a sizeable fee, will take a client back in time, WAY back, so that they can hunt a Tyrannosaurus Rex. But overly conscious of any possible effect on future time (the butterfly effect) great measures are taken to ensure that as little impact on time is allowed. Time Safari employees mark possible huntee animals as those who would have died anyway and a gravity defying path is formed to protect every blade of ancient grass.

But what happens when a hunter walks off the path?

Bradbury demonstrates AGAIN that he is the literary equivalent to Chuck Norris, kicking ass, taking names, and teaching physics without a chalkboard to generations of SF/F readers.
