The premise is simple: "Astronauts attempt to return to earth after debris crashes into their space shuttle, leaving them drifting alone in space." But the actual action is horrifying. Which is even evident in this simple, but stunning new poster showcasing George Clooney and Sandra Bullock's frightful separation in space. Oh hell, we hope this is good.

I know there was an SF short story like this, maybe by Arthur C Clarke? Orbiting ship suffers a disaster and we follow the victims in their space suits afterwards? If I recall, none of them survived. It was sort of an investigation of all the ways space can kill you but it wasn't horror or even all that melancholy since all the astronauts were happy they had realized their dream of going into space and all were immediately resigned to their fate as soon as the incident occurred.
