Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti Shares Amazing Gravity Cosplay in Space

Samantha Cristoforetti, an astronaut of the European Space Agency (ESA), has done it once more. She had previously replicated a memorable moment from the Sandra Bullock-starring 2013 film Gravity, after her amazing cosplay of Captain Katherine Janeway from Star Trek Voyager aboard the International Space Station (ISS) in 2015. When the astronaut reenacted the moment from the movie when Bullock’s Dr. Stone is walking around the space station with a tank top, black shorts, and a watch in her hand, she posted the photograph on Twitter on Sunday.

Cristoforetti recreated a still from the film on Sunday by tweeting a picture of herself costumed as Dr. Stone. The Dr. Stone moment may be seen on a screen above her in the ISS corridor in Cristoforetti’s photograph. It’s an uncannily accurate recreation. “Dr. Stone, hey! A brief query for you. How did you manage to keep your hair in place?” With the hashtag #AskingForAFriend, Cristoforetti made a joke.

Bullock’s short hairstyle and Hollywood movie magic were her secret to flawless hair. The problems of life in microgravity, such as flyaways, must be dealt with by Cristoforetti. Scott Kelly, Cristoforetti’s stationmate from 2014–2015, had to wait a long time for the picture. In response to Cristoforetti’s cosplay, the former NASA astronaut tweeted that his biggest regret from his year-long flight to space was not being quick enough with the camera to capture Cristoforetti in the Gravity position.

Kelly released his “picture fail” from the incident, which featured an empty space in the International Space Station with the movie playing above it. Cristoforetti is currently on his second trip to the ISS. She embarked on the SpaceX Crew-4 mission in late April, and she might spend up to six months in space. She will have plenty of time to dress up in more microgravity cosplay as a result.

I knew no photograph could do the Grand Canyon justice when I first saw it in person. However, a photo taken by Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency almost captures the joy of seeing the natural marvel. Last Thursday, Cristoforetti posted on social media the eerie scene of a US national park. The picture depicts a scene of brown and scarlet with wispy clouds surrounding the canyon’s branching, serpentine lines.
