La NASA propose ses clichés bien réels en hommage à « Gravity »

En hommage aux 7 Oscars (dont ceux du Meilleur Réalisateur, de la Meilleure Photo et de la Meilleure Musique) pour le film Gravity, Le NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, centre de recherches de la NASA, propose aux internautes son album de photos publié sur Flickr montrant que l’exploration spatiale. Ici, ce n’est vraiment pas du cinéma.

NASA-Gravity-01

Inside the Cupola, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, an Expedition 36 flight engineer, uses a 400mm lens on a digital still camera to photograph a target of opportunity on Earth some 250 miles below him and the International Space Station. Cassidy has been aboard the orbital outpost since late March and will continue his stay into September.

 

NASA-Gravity-03

The winner of the 2011 SAVE Award is Matthew Ritsko, a Goddard financial manager. His tool lending library would track and enable sharing of expensive space-flight tools and hardware after projects no longer need them. This set of images represents the types of tools used at NASA.

The bright sun greets the International Space Station in this Nov. 22 scene from the Russian section of the orbital outpost, photographed by one of the STS-129 crew members.

 

NASA-Gravity-04

Mission Specialist John Grunsfeld is positioned on a foot restraint on the end of Atlantis’ remote manipulator system and Andrew Feustel (top center), mission specialist, participate in the mission’s fifth and final spacewalk.

 

NASA-Gravity-10

Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger’s payload bay, McCandless went « free-flying » to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space. (02/12/1984).

 

NASA-Gravity-08

A close-up of Astronaut John Grunsfeld shows the reflection of Astronaut Andrew Feustel, perched on the robotic arm and taking the photo. The pair teamed together on three of the five spacewalks during Servicing Mission 4 in May 2009.

 

NASA-Gravity-09

Silhouetted against the Earth, Atlantis flies into the rising Sun in this photograph taken by an astronaut on the International Space Station on July 19, 2011.

 

NASA-Gravity-11

NASA image captured July 12, 2011. With his feet secured on a restraint on the space station remote manipulator system’s robotic arm or Canadarm2, NASA astronaut Mike Fossum (frame center) holds the Robotics Refueling Mission payload, which was the focus of one of the primary chores accomplished on a six and a half hour spacewalk on July 12.

 

NASA-Gravity-13

The Hubble Space Telescope in a picture snapped by a Servicing Mission 4 crewmember just after the Space Shuttle Atlantis captured Hubble with its robotic arm on May 13, 2009, beginning the mission to upgrade and repair the telescope.
