These two stories are excellent examples of the science-fiction genre.

Rescue Party, by Arthur C. Clarke

The Last Question, by Isaac Asimov

I particularly enjoy the final lines of each, as they are quite epic. This is what I really enjoy in a story like this, but sadly, I suspect it is very difficult to capture this sort of thing very well; a lot of stories try, but fail, or simply do not achieve the same level as is required.
