NASA releases ‘Gravity’-inspired photo set ahead of the Oscars

Just in time for the Academy Awards, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has released a new photo set inspired by Gravity. The movie makes heavy use of computer-generated imagery, but NASA’s photos show space as it really looks to the astronauts lucky enough to leave the Earth’s orbit.  Using photos taken over the last several years, “NASA’s Real-Life Images from Space” showcases astronauts, space shuttles, and some jaw-dropping views of Earth. It should look familiar to viewers of Gravity, which is nominated for the award for best picture tonight.
