“The Science of Interstellar” is a thorough account of the Caltech physicist’s in depth studies into space travel. Kip Thorne relays to readers the exhaustive physics research that was used in the making of the film. What is more, he manages to illustrate the fantastic sights from the movie such as black holes, 4 thousand foot tall waves and numerous higher dimensions that were featured in the hit in such a manner that even the average layman can understand. Thorne boarded the project at its innocent fledgling origins back in 2005 when it was still just an idea for producer Lynda Obst. The longtime friend of Thorne, Obst wished to produce a film that would be accurate to the mind-blowing science that space travel holds while also intriguing audiences and sparking a newfound love of physics in a fresh faced generation of fans.

In the process, Thorne even expanded upon his own knowledge and education of the physical aspects and limits of the universe as we know it. Any science enthusiast will find the latest release by this genius physicist to be more than just an interesting read. “The Science of Interstellar” gives readers a glimpse into an expanse of the universe that they otherwise will never have the opportunity to see and comprehend.
