With its many spectacular 3D 'weightless' sequences showcasing actress Sandra Bullock free-falling through space, accompanied by non-stop gasping as if she is having a 'cosmic orgasm', the new science fiction feature "Gravity" continues to dreamily enthrall audiences, including a slow-motion disrobing scene similar to the opening of the 1968 feature "Barbarella".

"During the final spacewalk to service the 'Hubble Space Telescope', 'Mission Control' in Houston warns the team that debris from a Russian missile strike on a defunct satellite has caused a chain reaction of destruction and that they must abort the mission.
"Shortly afterward, communications from Mission Control are lost, though Stone and Kowalski continue to transmit in hopes that the ground crew can hear them.
"High-speed debris kills an engineer and damages the space shuttle 'Explorer', sending Stone far away from it.
"Kowalski navigates to Stone and retrieves her. Tethered together, the two make their way back to Explorer, where they discover it has been damaged far beyond usability, and the rest of the crew are dead from exposure. They decide to use the thruster pack to make their way to the 'International Space Station' (ISS), which is in orbit only about 100 km away..."
