I'm not sure if this piece was really the first one with that glass thing in front or not but I think it was among the first pictures. So, I'll count it as a great PLUS for the originality. (Although I personally don't like this way of depicturing space scenes - reason I won't fav it :) ).
Well, the most successful part of the picture is the afore-mentioned foreground with glass scene telling us a story about someone dying on the spaceship. Broken glass (although well done) does not concern me as much as the colouring of the interior (the guy and his hand) - it has that right cold feeling. I can literally feel that cool glass on my hand and forehead.
Another good touch is on the ship - I'm not really sure what's happening but it surely does stir my imagination.

Nebulae and starfield look good BUT..

Small planet looks good BUT..

Front moon (or is it a planet?) doesn't look that good BECAUSE...

-->...that glass is preventing us to see all the usuall details.
There is just that glass texture all over the painting that covers all the nice space details and lowers the overall impact.

It's a really nice and original piece that can push your imagination in the right direction with that one friggin' flaw in the form of that glass (again - my honnest personal opinion, If anyone else likes it, give one more star to the impact). I like sci-fi... ...I mean I LOVE sci-fi... ...but I also like space art and this little brother here suffers because of it :)
What do you think?

Visually appealing to me. You did well with portrayal of hopelessness and inevitable doom. This work depicts the deadly beauty of soulless space in a brutal way. Such a tragic feeling.
