The story comments that during a storm in Antarctica, it is easy to get lost in just ten paces. The story mentions both decanite and thermite charges. As mentioned in the movie study, thermite is a metallic powder that can generate an extremely hot burst of heat when combined with a catalyst, but I have not been able to find any real world reference to what decanite might be.

Seemingly, scriptwriter Bill Lancaster got the term "decanite" from this story.

While burning the ice away from the buried ship with thermite, the expedition sees three other dark blobs in the ice that may have been other passengers besides the one found, before the ice tumbles down against the remains of the ship. McReady compares the frozen Thing they've found to the frozen mammoths that have been found in Siberia.

Siberia covers most of northern Asia and has a largely subarctic climate; frozen mammoth carcasses have indeed been found there, with estimated millions more still buried. It is suggested that the thawing and recovering Thing has a degree of telepathic power which is causing many members of the outpost to have dreams and nightmares about it.

Blair mentions the enzyme-molecule theory of viruses, but I have not been able to find another reference to a theory by that name in the real world. The story describes what may be the "natural" form of the Thing, which is similar to that depicted in Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials by Wayne Barlowe; Barlowe's artwork of the Thing in ice and partially imitating a dog can be viewed at Outpost Kinner mentions Boeing. Boeing is an American aerospace company.

In this story, it is likely referring to airplanes used by the outpost rather than helicopters as seen in the film; although invented in , helicopters were not in full-scale production until the story was written, and presumably takes place, in Blair mentions the Ross Sea. This is a deep ocean bay in Antarctica. The Thing-creature thawed out of the ice is described as being about four feet tall.

The dog kennels are referred to as Dogtown as they are in the film script. The story describes the Thing as susceptible to flame and electricity, as it is in the film. One of the dogs is named Charnauk.

Another is named Chinook which is also a breed of sled dog. Blair mentions the possibility of the Thing imitating a skua gull. The character also does so in the film script though it did not appear in the film. Skuas are large, predatory seabirds known to inhabit both temperate and arctic and Antarctic climates.

Blair smashes all of the outpost's magnetos. This is the source of Lancaster's "missing magneto" in the film script.

A magneto is a type of electrical generator that produces alternating current via two rotating magnets. Blair also goes into a fit of fear and paranoia during which he smashes the base's transportation so the Thing cannot escape in disguise, just as in the film.

In the story, Dr. Copper goes into more detail of how a blood serum test would work to detect who was a Thing and who wasn't, though I'm not sure if it would really work the way he describes or not. Benning instead of Bennings as in the film is an aviation mechanic instead of a meteorologist as in the film.
