Video: Astrophysicists discuss the film Interstellar

Black holes, worm holes, exoplanets, time dilation. Three astrophysicists discuss them all in a presentation of the science behind the film Interstellar.

On November 26, 2014 – just before the Thanksgiving holiday began – the Kavli Foundation hosted a fun Google+ hangout on the science of the blockbuster film “Interstellar.”

Three astrophysicists answered viewers’ questions about black holes, worm holes, exoplanets, time dilation, and more, separating the movie’s science facts from its science fiction.

It’s fascinating stuff. Enjoy!
