While Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity’ won big at the Oscars last night, NASA decided to release a stunning set of photos highlighting just how close Cuaron’s team got to re-creating real life space travel.

This amazing collection titled ‘Gravity’ — NASA’s Real Life Photos from Space shows images of space walks, the International Space Station, life onboard one of the shuttles and the process of bringing astronauts back to earth – thankfully all of the photos were of textbook returns and not the death-defying one seen in Gravity.

Check out all of the images above in beautiful high-resolution, along with descriptive captions that tell you exactly what you’re looking at, over on the NASA Goddard Flickr stream.
