Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:
“Houston, this is Parkes. I just thought I would give you an update. My rotational velocity has slowed as I have encountered strong particulate winds emanating from the tail of the comet forcing the craft to respond in a more aerodynamic manner. Impact with the comet will occur in six hours and twelve minutes. I will run out of oxygen in five hours and fifty-three minutes. I’m not sure if I should be thankful of that or not.”
