This is a SHORT story, split into five parts.

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.

Nice start. If it was me up there alone, I suspect the sounds of the station would drive me to hyperviligance - loud music would be the answer

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.
