Heavenly Body of the Week: Matt Kowalski (Spoiler Alert)



"I'm afraid that ship already sailed. Ryan, you're gonna have to learn to let go." - Matt Kowalski

So far in this series, I have stuck to planetary bodies, moons, and space stations and/or ships, but here we are going to narrow this bitch down to a single human being. A single human being floating forever through space. In this case, that one forever floating human being is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski, as played by George Clooney in the 2013 film, Gravity. Yup, that's right kids...George Clooney! As anyone who has seen the film already knows (and yeah, I did put spoiler alert in the title!) poor hapless Matt Kowalski, sacrifices himself to allow Dr. Ryan Stone, as played by Sandy Bullock, to survive out in space. And he is still there to this day, floating frozen in orbit. If you squint up into the night sky, and it is a clear night, you might just see this heavenly body. And hey, there are many ladies (and quite a few men) who definitely would consider George Clooney a heavenly body. So there!

Check out the Heavenly Body of the Week Space Database.
That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.

  1. Oh yes that dreck of a movie..I think George wanted to escape what little plot there was since he realized it was all just 3D effects
