Physics

A 90 kg astronaut and a 1100 kg satellite are at rest relative to the space shuttle. The astronaut pushes on the satellite, giving it a speed of 0.24 m/s directly away from the shuttle. Seven-and-a-half seconds later the astronaut comes into contact with the shuttle.

What was the initial distance from the shuttle to the astronaut?
