Kowalski detaches from Stone so that she can survive. He presumably breaks Solovyev's space walk record. Stone uses the soft landing jets on the Soyuz capsule, which has no other fuel, to get to the Chinese space station as it's reentering earth's atmosphere, gets into their functioning re-entry vehicle, and makes it back to Earth alive. She lands in a large lake, swims out, kicking off the space suit, and staggers ashore.


Factual error: When Ryan enters the space station and removes her spacesuit she is shown wearing only a tank top and boy shorts. In reality, according to NASA's official webpage astronauts wear a liquid cooling and ventilation garment and an absorption garment (space diapers) under their suit. (00:38:45)
