Hello, this is my first post here.

The short story is about the people of earth discovering that they can't get out of the solar system, because it is enclosed in a giant transparent sphere.
When they finally break out, they find out that all the planetary systems are also trapped in spheres.
Very good story and written in a humorous style.

I read it 10 years ago, in a short story compilation book that was older.
