A journey through the otherworldly science behind Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film, Interstellar, from executive producer and theoretical physicist Kip Thorne. Interstellar, from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic voyage far beyond our solar system. Yet in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the physicist who assisted Nolan on the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the movie’s jaw-dropping events and stunning, never-before-attempted visuals are grounded in real science. Thorne shares his experiences working as the science adviser on the film and then moves on to the science itself. In chapters on wormholes, black holes, interstellar travel, and much more, Thorne’s scientific insights—many of them triggered during the actual scripting and shooting of Interstellar—describe the physical laws that govern our universe and the truly astounding phenomena that those laws make possible.

Loved it Fascinating look at the science behind one of my favorite movies. And not so completely technical that i could not follow it.

Awesome It was amazing. Thanks Kip!
Just perfect! Great science book , understandable also for the average person , based on probably 1 of the most scientific accurate movies so far. Made me for the 1st time be able to somehow visually grasp phenomena like black holes, wormholes and the bulk. Recommendation for anyone!!!

Loved it..!! Kip Thorne, I loved the way you wrote the book. The diagrams helped a lot. I got a tonn of doubts and i dont knw how to solve them. Googled a lot but these doubts cant be searched in the internet it can be solved only through a conversation. And I deeply wish one day i could talk to you. Atleast to resolve the doubts. And finally thanks fr writing such an immaculate book.
