Gravity Astronaut costumes and space capsule on display...

Alfonso Cuarón's 2013 sci-fi spectacle Gravity won seven Oscars for its tale of a medical engineer (played by Sandra Bullock) on her first shuttle mission when an accident strikes a routine spacewalk leaving her stranded in the blackness of space and fighting for her survival.

In the feature film, which earned Sandra Bullock her second Academy Award nomination, the actress plays 'Dr. Ryan Stone', an astronaut stranded in space after her NASA space shuttle is destroyed by a cloud of debris and she has to reach the International Space Station with her fellow astronaut 'Matt Kowalski' (George Clooney) for a chance to survive.

George Clooney's character is a veteran astronaut in control of this mission, his intended final journey to space, and after the accident he uses the MMU (Manned Maneuvering Unit) jetpack to get the duo to the International Space Station.

Sacrificing himself so she can survive, Dr. Stone uses a Soyuz module to reach the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 in order to successfully pilot another capsule back to Earth.

If you like these costumes and props, fans of cinematic space travel can also check out Matt Damon's NASA astronaut costume from The Martian and Anne Hathaway's spacesuit from Interstellar on display.
