Interstellar Timeline Infographic

"Our new home." Now that Christopher Nolan's sci-fi spectacular Interstellar (Sound Off here) has been in theaters for over two weeks (which means we hope you've all seen it by now!), some great artwork and explanations are hitting the web. Last week we featured an excellent infographic timeline that nicely laid out the timeline as it intertwined with the plot of the film, following the crew of the Endurance as the embark on a mission to explore another galaxy. This new one, made by digital artist Sivakumar found on deviantArt, includes charming little sketches of the characters and the events that take place, really giving this a fresh, fun feel why making some sense of the plot. I really like this one, take a look. Oh and of course - spoilers!

Here's the infographic from Siva Kumar explaining Christopher Nolan's Interstellar - click to see high res:


I really love all the little touches. Notice the spoiler alert in the upper left corner? And the way Matthew McConaughey's character Cooper carries a tiny green leaf icon with him the entire time, eventually to plant a new home with Dr. Amelia Brand on the red planet. Now seeing this plot recapped with this bigger picture view, plus the tiny nod to Christopher Nolan with the roots of the red heart seeping into his name at the bottom, it makes me wonder: was Nolan trying to inspire us to look to Mars as a second home? Nice, rocky, but habitable red planet just like the one found by Edmund - it could be. And thankfully there are already real NASA missions planned to get there soon. As always, it's quite interesting to see the ambitious plot of Nolan's sci-fi adventure distilled down to one image, but I'm glad it's so easily understandable. Great work.

    **SPOILER*******This is assuming he finds brand at the end; The wormhole closes at the end, so cooper is going to be on a long journey.. Stil,l nice poster.
    • Brian Sleider
      I dont think the worm hole was closed. If it was closed what would the point of are VERY future selves even opening it?
  • David Diaz
    The movie is much easier to understand than all these infographics.

    SPOILER ALERT - Did Cooper really survive or is Cooper Station and him seeing Murph in old age just his life flashing by him before his demise?
    • Brian Sleider
      He lived. Pretty obviously.

    So Interstellar is a cartoon .. ah man i thought it was real ..
  • Brian Sleider
    He may have said that, but I did not see that at all implied in the movie. As a movie goer I look at the movie as a whole, not something I need to read up on after to see what the director had in mind. I personally inferred that the worm hole is still there other wise the whole movie is for naught, so they found a planet, great. They will never get to it. Unless the assumption is to be that they will use the "formula" to open a new worm hole, which is more far fetched than them just leaving it open.
