A nail-biting thriller about the terrifying vastness of space, from the director of Children Of Men. Dr Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is an astronaut on her first mission aboard the Space Shuttle Explorer. She is accompanied by Matt Kowalski, a veteran commanding his last mission. While servicing the Hubble Space Telescope, Stone and Kowalski are warned by Mission Control that a Russian missile strike has stirred up some debris that may pose a threat to them. The mission is aborted and the astronauts lose communications with their contacts. When the debris strikes the shuttle, Stone is detached from the vessel. Kowalski rescues her but this is merely the beginning of their nightmare as they realise the rest of the crew have been killed and the shuttle is damaged.
