Science Behind Interstellar Explained

If you’ve recently been to the movie theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s latest film Interstellar, you may have left the movie like “OMG,” but possibly also like “WTF?” Through the film’s storyline, the audience is introduced to a number of captivating yet complicated topics that former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and his team must tackle on their quest into unknown regions of space in order to save mankind.
To help demystify a few astrophysics-specific topics discussed in the movie such as using wormholes to travel to distant parts of the galaxy, the physics behind alternate dimensions, tidal forces caused by the gravitational pull of black holes, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and the physics behind aging at different rates explained by the famous Twin Paradox just to name a few, InstaEDU has teamed up with its own physics, astrophysics, and cosmology tutors to not only help shed light on these topics but to open a dialogue between you, the reader, and our experts who can help explain the answers that you’re looking for.
