* As with the [[spoiler: Vulcans]] above, in the original Franchise/StarWars film, ''Film/ANewHope'', Alderaanians who were offworld when when the Death Star destroyed their home planet are similarly orphaned. While most are only mentioned in [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe material]], Princess Leia was a prisoner aboard the Death Star and witnessed Alderaan's destruction firsthand.

**Post-Crisis, part of the backstory of the Eradicator was used to explain why there were no astronauts to survive Krypton's destruction, during the period when DC was holding firm on reinforcing the whole "last son of Krypton" thing. Of course, that didn't last, and the "cold" Krypton of that period was eventually superseded by a "warmer" one with a history of ventures into space.



** In ''Literature/AFireUponTheDeep'', the attack that destroys Sjandra Kei completely bypasses their hired defense fleet, leaving only the fleet's crews alive:
--->"The Aniara Fleet." That's what some of the crews of Commercial Security were calling themselves. Aniara was the ship of an old human myth, older than Nyjora, perhaps going back to the Tuvo-Norsk cooperatives in the asteroids of Earth's solar system. In the story, Aniara was a large ship launched into interstellar depths just before the death of its parent civilization. The crew watched the death agonies of the home system, and then over the following years as their ship fell out and out into the endless dark died themselves, their life-support systems slowly failing.

** An interesting take on this subject - the episode "Roads To Nowhere" indicates that within 200 years every vehicle on earth will no longer exist, due to some corrosive nature; however, the lunar rovers, now untouched on the moon since the late 1960's, will continue to be unbellimished for centuries.

* In the first season finale of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Vandal Savage changes history by sending information to himself in the past, and the only people unaffected when the DelayedRippleEffect kicks in are a group of the Leaguers in Earth orbit. (Although it's not being out in space that protects them -- the ripple reaches them and keeps going -- they're all travelling in a bubble projected by Comicbook/GreenLantern's [[GreenLanternRing ring]], which protects them somehow.)

* After the destruction of the planet [[spoiler: Vulcan]] in ''Film/StarTrek XI'', Spock estimates there to be a few thousand survivors. All those people obviously couldn't have been on their planet at the time it bit the dust.
