If the science of Interstellar left you scratching your head and wanting to learn more about black holes, wormholes, relativity and more that was on display, then The Discovery Channel has just the remedy for you. They debuted an hour-long special (that's about 45 minutes without commercials) called "The Science of Interstellar," and it's easy for anyone to follow, even if you don't know anything about physics or space. It doesn't explain any of the plot holes people seem to have problems with, even though there are some out there that should just be forgiven based on the time travel material, but it's still a cool special, and it's all narrated by the film's leading man Matthew McConaughey. All right, all right, all right? Watch below!
Here's The Discovery Channel special "The Science of Interstellar" from YouTube:
