Another Outstanding Fan-Made '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.
