‘The Science of ‘Interstellar’ (US 2014): Book Excerpt

Famed physicist Kip Thorne brought real science to this year’s sci-fi movie epic “Interstellar.”

In his new book “The Science of ‘Interstellar'” (W.W. Norton & Company, 2014), Thorne goes into detail about the physics that underlies the awesome phenomena explored in the movie, including black holes, time dilation, a disease that could decimate food crops on Earth and an alien planet with 4,000-foot-tall (1,200 meters) water waves.
