Looking for old time radio show OTR story with this plot. A passenger spaceship for some reason has to make the choice to self destruct because if it doesn't it will impact a major city and be like small extinction level asteroid crash.

I don't think this was a normal episode of a series like dimension x because I've listened to the classic major series, but maybe I've missed it. I heard this from a school library tape set of radio shows that included a lot of radio shows and Orson Welles stuff.

    It's the novelette "Sound Decision" by Robert Silverberg and Randall Garrett. You can read it here. It was adapted to radio (drastically abridged) as an episode of Exploring Tomorrow which you can listen to here. Apr 27, 2020 at 6:45
