See how this ISS astronaut recreated a moment from the movie Gravity

The inhabitant of International Space Station (ISS)Samantha Cristoforetti is clearly having fun aboard the orbiting outpost, taking a moment out of her busy schedule to recreate a moment from the space movie Gravity of 2013.

An image (below) shared by Cristoforetti shows the European Space Agency astronaut striking a pose that perfectly replicates a moment in the hit movie where Dr. Stone, played by Sandra Bullock, makes her way through the station. Cristoforetti even set it up so that the scene from the movie would be shown on a screen right above her.

It’s quite an effort, though one of the main differences between the two images is the state of Bullock’s hair, which stays perfectly in place. I guess there is no microgravity in a Hollywood studio.

The hair situation was also not lost on Cristoforetti: “Hey, Dr. Stone! Quick question for you. How did you get your hair to stay still?” the Italian astronaut joked.

Retired NASA astronaut Scott Kelly responded to the post with a tweet revealing how during his mission to the ISS with Cristoforetti seven years ago, he missed the opportunity to capture the same shot while watching. Gravity on the same screen.

“One of my biggest regrets from my year in space was watching #GravityMovie and having @AstroSamantha float next to the screen after she worked out and not being fast enough on camera,” Kelly said. “So disappointed then, but everything is fine now. Thank you, Samantha!”

While the astronauts aboard the space station spend most of their time conducting scientific research, as well as planning and conducting spacewalks for maintenance and upgrade work, the crews also take time to relax and have a little fun.
