I didn't read this article. I don't have to. If I floated away from the ISS by accident, yes, I would try everything to get back. But if everything failed and you told me that the last 7.5 hours of my life would be spent floating in orbit above this planet... I would simply say "thank you." The best way to die... ever.
[An edit to explain a bit further:] If you love life, as I do, there is no good way to die. But some ways might be better than others, and there might be one that's better than all. There's a reason that I'm not an astronaut. Let us overlook the fact that I'm too old, out-of-shape, overweight, and don't have the right education. I'm not an astronaut because if they sent me up there, I'd never get any work done. I'd be forever looking out the window. And so, if I was drifting away with all hope of rescue gone, at least I'd have I'd have 7.5 hours to take in what Yuri Gagarin and so many after him got to see. Thank you.
