Now that you’ve seen “Interstellar” in whatever format
you preferred, maybe you’re curious about the science behind
the sci-fi movie but feel more than a little intimidated to take on the
new book by executive producer and theoretical physicist Kip Thorne, “The Science of Interstellar”?
In that case, how about a forty-minute-long TV special condensing the
real science and theories behind some of the events in the film?
Yesterday, Discovery Channel’s hour-long special (when including commercials) “The Science of Interstellar” surfaced online (via Reddit) and it’s a very palatable way to learn more about the physics of black holes and relativity, all while listening to Matthew McConaughey cooly narrate. The special features appearances from Christopher Nolan, producer Emma Thomas, Jonathan “Call Me Jonah” Nolan, Thorne and a whole host of scientists.
“The Science of Interstellar” is an easy and undemanding watch, so
start your weekend right with a dose of science. Watch it below.
