It came to mind a few weeks ago and a number of times since then but I still can't remember.
I read a sci-fi story - long time ago, and all I remember is this scene.
There are two astronauts, one is the cop and the other is the criminal he pursues. They are on an asteroid (significant but low gravity - no atmosphere), at one pole where there is a huge, parabolic(?) depression with a frictionless (or almost frictionless) surface.
They have fallen into this and are connected to each other by a length of rope. Their problem is how to get out of it.
Does anyone know this story?
