I have mixed feelings about this movie. It has some great physics in it, things no film has tried to portray this accurately before. But it also has some far-fetched aspects and Hollywood touches that detract from the overall experience for me.
Assignment: This week I want you to pick a physics topic from the movie to analyze. There are plenty of things to choose from, including space travel, black holes, wormholes, exotic planets, higher dimensions, extreme time dilation, and many others. To help you in this task, you are required to choose a topic that has a corresponding chapter in the book, “The Science of Interstellar.” You can then use that chapter as a guide to help, but NOT limit, you in writing your blog.
