Re: [Phys-L] Interstellar

I've heard mixed reviews.
Neil deGrasse Tyson likes it..
Bad Astronomy guy doesn't...

I didn't realize Kip Thorne actually wrote an accompanying piece. I will have to look that up.
I haven't had a chance to go. I actually got a poster in the mail with activities for the movie, but I haven't had a chance to look at any of them. Don't know how I got on that mailing list.

Have a good one.

I saw this movie today. The story is convoluted and far-fetched, but the science is very accurate (involving celestial mechanics, time travel, black holes, relativity, and quantum physics). The film is a bit long at nearly 3 hours, but it makes you think about our humanity and the complexities of intergalactic space travel.

Anyone else seen it?
