After, by Ron Collins

Analog Science Fiction and Fact, March 2015; ~500 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, story

Short-short, in which a mechanical problem traps a crew member outside the spaceship and the rest of the crew try desperately to save him/her.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Interesting message, that the doomed crew member never really appreciated how beautiful the universe was until he/she was about to leave it.

Con: It's hard for a short-short to say very much.
