The shuttle is approaching a huge spinning space station. While getting closer, the ship is adapting the rotation speed of the space station in order to enter the landing hatch. Unfortunately the maneuver fails and the shuttle crashes into the station. A scene inspired by the 1968 science fiction film «2001: A Space Odyssey» directed by Stanley Kubrick.
