Interstellar

If you feel like you've seen enough footage from Interstellar, and you've already made your decision to see the film, we're right there with you. We're trying to avoid seeing too much of the film before Christopher Nolan's sci-fi flick hits theaters in a couple weeks. But if you want to learn a little more about the real science that inspired the film, Wired has just revealed a cool new featurette with physicist Kip Thorne (an executive producer on the project), who helped Nolan understand the real science behind wormholes, space travel and more. This stuff is pretty mindblowing, but it's also only a brief video. If you really want to dive into the science of Interstellar, we recommend checking out Wired's article on the matter. Watch below!

Why does Christopher Nolan have a British accent while Jonathan Nolan has an American accent? These are the things that keep me up at night
