Prompt for October 3, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The crack in his helmet visibly lengthened as he talked to the rest of the crew through his comm link. As the crack lengthened his lifespan shortened. The ship, Abney Park, was approaching, but too slowly to get here in time if his off the cuff measurements were correct. They were too far away, moving too slowly and the crack was growing too fast. When it reached the edge of his helmet and broke the seal he would start to leak oxygen and there was no way he was going to be able to survive. Or could he?

Post a link to the story in the comments.
