This whole chapter caught my attention. I can't even imagine the feeling of being stuck in orbit like that with comms out and not know what's going on.

I know the feeling supported and having people to enjoy the work you put out so i want you to know there are many of us who really love the story.

A good hook.  The idea of earth suffering some catastrophe got my attention.
Is there more? I would love read more of it. Nice story. Keep up with the good work.

Maybe to make it flow a bit better would be "I spent the day taking an inventory of all of the supplies..." I really enjoy this, though the plot seems a bit rushed, the style is really good and I'm glad you didn't do all of his logs as separate chappies.
