PHOTOGRAPHY: NASA Releases Set of Real Life ‘Gravity’ Images

On Sunday, just a few hours before science fiction thriller Gravity would win a whopping seven Academy Awards, NASA tweeted a set of pictures showing what life in space really looks like.

Commenting on the film last year, Mark Uhran, who retired in 2012 as a NASA director for the International Space Station, said, “My first reaction was that the cinematography was of spectacular realism. I’ve never seen that done before.” He added, “I’ve never seen a Hollywood filmmaker actually be able to capture that clarity and resolution of the space station and shuttle.”

See them all in the gallery above and be sure to check out the rest on the official NASA flickr page.
