Is this a meme I see before me?

I picked this up from Andrew Wheeler at The Antick Musings of G.B.H. Hornswoggler, Gent.:

What to do: post the first sentence of the first post from each calendar month of this year, with links.

It used to be a staple of B-movie science fiction involving travel in outer space or landing on another planet: the meteor shower, rocks flying through space and threatening our heroes with explosive decompression (see yesterday’s post!) or worse.
