I read a story long ago that has gotten stuck in my mind lately, but I have no idea of the author or title!
It's about a wrecked spaceship. All the crew get into spacesuits, but have no maneuvering packs. They are all being thrown away from the wreck in various directions. There's no hope of rescue, and the story consists almost entirely of the crew’s radio communications with each other and the thoughts of the protagonist.
The protagonist is the only one heading towards Earth, and the story ends with him thinking "I'll burn like a meteor. I wonder if anyone'll see me" and then cuts to a kid saying "Look! A shooting star!" And mommy saying "Make a wish!"
Obviously, it had an impact on me! I probably would have read it between the late '60's and early '70's.
Thanks for any help!
