It is hard for most people to understand the difficulty in being in orbit trying to reach another object in orbit. Accelerating an object in the direction of travel will actually not move you forward. Instead the energy is used up raising the object's altitude, where it will have a slower orbital speed and therefore actually move "backwards" in orbit. Accelerating "up," "down" or "backward" would have other results that most people wouldn't expect. For Stone to directly aim at the Chinese space station in its own independent orbit and accelerate in that direction would give results that are unpredictable given our lack of knowledge of both orbits, but most definitely would not result in her getting to where she wants to go.

Save your time and money and go watch anything else. This film was absolutely ridiculous and dreadful. I don't know what film other people have been watching to rate this a good movie (maybe they mixed the film reels up) but what I saw was the worst film I ever had the displeasure of watching. Remember when your in the cinema deciding to watch this choose anything else as you will thank me.However one good part which earned its one point was George Clooney. Sandra Bullock films have gone from bad to worse with this being the absolute bottom of the pile. Want to watch a decent film in space rent Apollo 13 or absolutely anything as I have just wasted 2 hours of my life which I want back.
