Gravity || NASA Space Shuttle Explorer, commanded by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski, is in Earth’s orbit on Mission STS-157 to service the Hubble Space Telescope. Dr. Ryan Stone is aboard on her first space mission as a mission specialist, to perform a set of hardware upgrades on the Hubble. During a spacewalk, Mission Control in Houston warns Explorer‘s crew about a Russian missile strike on a defunct satellite, which has inadvertently caused a chain reaction forming a rapidly-expanding cloud of space debris, and orders the crew to return to Earth immediately. Communication with Mission Control is lost shortly thereafter as more and more communication satellites are knocked out by the debris.
High-speed debris strike the Explorer and Hubble, tearing Stone from the Shuttle and leaving her tumbling through space. Kowalski, using a Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU), rescues Stone, and they return to the Explorer, where they discover that the Shuttle has suffered catastrophic damage, and the rest of the crew are dead.
Stone and Kowalski decide to use the MMU to reach the International Space Station (ISS), which is in orbit about 1,450 km (900 mi) away. Kowalski estimates that they have 90 minutes before the debris field completes an orbit and threatens them again. On their way to the ISS, the two discuss Stone’s home life and her daughter, who died young in an accident. As they approach the station, they see that the. ISS’s crew has evacuated into one of its two Soyuz spacecraft, and the remaining. Soyuz’s parachute has been prematurely deployed, rendering it unable to return to Earth.
