Relativistic time-travel of six-weeks in Space (equal to nine-years on Earth) results in the title concept “Return to Tomorrow”. “Alan Corday” back on Earth finds that his “fiancée” has aged and lost her memory. “Alan Corday” then finds that his home is now longer Earth. Engineer “Corday” takes over the spaceship from “Captain Jocelyn” and the story ends.
