    • Astonishing reading!HOW CAN BE REAL THE SCIENCE ON INTERSTELLAR?If you watched the film (that definitely I recommend to do before of reading this research book), you may wonder how they can explain some key details that it seemed to be kinda farfetched on the movie.Since it does not matter how absurd it may be seemed some of the phenomena or technologies presented in the film, just think how the things were just 200 years agoere were no telephones, televisions, cinema (where the three have also [...]


    • DO NOT GO HUMBLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHTThe book discusses the movie, so it is only fair that I use most of the space to discuss the movie as well. I will discuss the book itself in one of the sections below. To get a better understanding, we can break our discussion it up into three overlapping sections -- The Three aspects of the movie that has to be examined to get at its core Premise:1. The Future2. The Science3. The DreamsBook Rating: 4/5 (); Movie Rating: 9/10 ()Caution: Spoilers Ahead; Spoil [...]


    • We were lured by the advance hype into watching this extremely disappointing movie. Don't be fooled like we were: this is no 2001.Yes, they have maybe got all the science right, but that's not the most important thing in what's supposed to be a piece of entertainment. The story is stiff, awkward and sometimes just plain embarrassing. The characters are uninteresting. Oh, how we missed HAL! The visuals are okay, but nothing special compared to Kubrick's astonishing cinematography. Above all, they [...]


    • Before the review: I know that there were plenty of aspects in the movie inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey. I know it, but I still cannot stand the "2001" movie. Watched it four times, each time was worse than the prior. There had never been another movie in my life which I found as boring as "2001" and the Soundtrack still makes me cringe. However, I loved Interstellar. Just saying.The scientific insights into the movie are splendid. Not only are they accessibly written so that even a person wh [...]


    • First things first. I loved the movie. Nice to see a thoughtful SF movie. I am amazed at the amount of ink, virtual and other otherwise, being spilled about "What is wrong with this movie" or "What is wrong with Chris Nolan". I am delighted that Prof. Kip Thorne was involved with this film. His book,"Black Holes and Time Warps" is one of the best "popular" science books available. If you have not read it,do so. if you have seen the movie and have not read it,do so.No, "Interstellar" is not 2001. [...]


    • While it takes a book like this to remind us how cutting-edge and accurate Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar really was, author Kip S. Thorne (predictably) ignores what is perhaps the biggest idea of the movie.This idea has also proved the most polarising, with a range of critics and viewers labelling Nolan as sentimental, goofy and on a New Age trip as a result. I am, of course, referring to Dr Amelia Brand’s Big Speech near the end (played with deadpan earnestness by Anne Hathaway):Love isn [...]


    • Interstellar is one my fav film & Christopher Nolan is my fav director I have seen all movies of him (except 'following' which I m gonna watch soon) besides him the work of 'double negative' the visual effect team of Paul Franklin made to Oscar & ofcourse the sources Kip Throne & Lynda ObstThe Climax of the film 'The Tesserect' made me surprisingly awestrucked which happens to arise my interest in the book of the great scientist Kip ThroneThe chapters in the book are labeled as-1) Tr [...]


    • Considering the complexity of the topic, this was a surprisingly interesting and accessible read for a non-science geek like me. This book is part "behind the scenes of the making of Interstellar," part science textbook, and wholly enjoyable. Kip Thorne has a knack for making what could be very confusing concepts easily understood -- he truly has the soul of a teacher. Reading this book made Interstellar even more interesting to me. Highly recommended for fans of Interstellar, or others simply i [...]


    • Whether you enjoyed or disliked 2014's blockbuster Interstellar, it's not a film that's easily forgotten. I personally wasn't as hooked by it as I should have been, considering it was a carefully crafted intergalactic space journey set in an apocalyptic future made by a creative crew featuring a talented cast (all of which usually tends to be just my thing). What bugged me was the science. For somebody with an interest in the field of physics, I stumbled upon various maddening plot-holes that I [...]


    • I had trouble following a lot of Thorne's explanations, particularly the subjects of 'brane' and 'bulk'. He doesnt clearly explain these concepts. He mentions that there may be 'membranes' and we exist in a 3-dimensional membrane or 'brane', and there are separate branes above and below us like a sandwich. Im not an astrophysicist so this concept completely flew over my mind, is this brane made out of dark matter like the rest of our universe? I understand these are heavy concepts based on decad [...]


    • I feel ashamed I ever had that brief fling with Kip, and I've written to him to say that it's officially never happened. He apologized and said he understood. At least these cutting-edge physicists are more understanding than usual about retroactive alterations to reality.


    • What to say incredible book. I applaud the author for the effort to present complex science to ordinary readers like me. The universe is indeed stranger than we can even imagine.


    • I would have given 10 stars out of 5 for this book. Though I m reading this book late, this is one of the brilliant masterpieces I have read. Interstellar is one of my favorite movies as it is one of the very few movies that use Einstein's relativity laws and you digest them with the flow of the movie. Kip Thorne wrote this book as an introductory textbook to interstellar science. Higher dimensionality, the science of black holes and worm holes, tidal gravity, Gargantua simulations, bulk beings, [...]



    • The physicist Kip Thorne is the scientific mind behind the science of "Interstellar", thus if you want to know anything related to the astrophysics discussed in the movie, this is the book to read. Thorne introduces us to the beginning of the idea, when the movie was still to be directed by Steven Spielberg, and then moves to discussing in detail all the science present in the movie. Thorne does good a job in communicating complex concepts, however don't expect this book to be as easy as "Inters [...]


    • This one is a must read if Interstellar made you least bit curious about a multi-dimensional universe. The book practically enhances the movie experience by delving into the depths of the scientific concepts used in the movie, which otherwise were not discussed in detail in the movie keeping in mind the diverse audience. If you really want to tear apart the science used in Interstellar and find flaws or inconsistencies, better refer to this honest scientific explanation written by the theoretica [...]


    • Ótimo livro de física e o melhor complemento para quem quer entender o livro. Kip Thorne detalha os princípios científicos (como um buraco negro funciona, por exemplo) e o raciocínio que ele usou no filme. Me deu outra dimensão para o filme e um respeito enorme pelo tanto de ciência que Nollan colocou nele. É o filme mais cientificamente embasado que consigo lembrar. E, quanto ao livro, foi a primeira vez que tive uma noção clara do que seria uma hiperdimensão.


    • This book was just amazing. Kip Thorne is talking about just EVERYTHING that happened in the record-braking and Oscar-winner movie. If you really want to understand exactly all the cool stuff that happened through the movie, just read this :))


    • Wow! I have to admit I read this after watching the movie because I wanted to understand all that lingo that was going on in the movie. I had a rough idea but Thorne has done a good job expounding on it through the book.Amazing how many challenges the team had to go through in the making of the movie and you have to give it to them. A lot of physics is explained in the book and I can assure you most of it is Einsteinian. For someone who was reading Issac Asimov and Robert Heinlein as a child. yo [...]


    • I’ve read A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. Gah, I’m smart.I’ve read The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow. So smart.For the time reading ‘The Science of Interstellar’ by Kip S. Thorne I was feeling. Wut. I’m so dumb. I’m like… rudimentary simpleton. I’m like the main character of ‘Бахти големите ръки, чуек. Бахти туй аз ли съм? Уродска работа'.So, I’m not so smart after all.First, I’m a huge fa [...]


    • Inspiring, sweet and downright fascinating, it took me to the stars in ways very few books ever have for me. I am not easily moved. I am generally quite cynical but there are moments where I felt transported from my earthly habitat and daily rigmorale and genuinely felt liberated from any constaints I would normally succomb to in my average, routine, conventional, bustling coffee shop, dreary bus riding, loud mouthed customers as I do my grocery shopping in my local human trough distribution cen [...]


    • Fascinating subject, black holes, etc but I only understood about 25% of what I read. He gives good recommendations at the end for further reading.Sort of a cool quote at the end: "[C]ontrolling our own fate [] requires that a large fraction of us understand and appreciate science: How it operates. What it teaches us about the universe, the Earth, and life. What it can achieve. What its limitations are, due to inadequate knowledge or technology. How those limitations may be overcome. How we tran [...]


    • Had this book been any less awe inspiring, had it contained any lesser ideas than it did, but still had Kip explained things with the simplicity he did, I'd have rated it five stars. This book is not just a companion to a wonderful movie, the best of our generation (IMO), it is also a stepping stone towards a layman's understanding of the universe and the new ideas which are shaping our world. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the movie further, who wants to know the ideas and effo [...]


    • After I watched Interstellar I came away amazed and very happy. Then I heard about this book.Considering the subject matter Kip Thorne has done a pretty good job in keeping the book readable for a mass audience. He provides a good amount of sources at the end of the book for anyone who wishes to learn more or who would like more details. There were parts of this book where I sometimes had to read it two or three times, then put the book away for a while and think to fully understand what he was [...]


    • This is a great resource for fans of the movie who want to know - as the title suggests - the science behind the story. It is much easier to get through than Thorne's Black Holes and Time Warps but still not for the faint of heart, I think. One of my favorite aspects of the book was that Thorne labeled each section as Truth, Educated Guess, or Speculation, and through this the reader can gain a clearer picture as to how much of the movie is scientifically plausible (and it's a lot). And I love t [...]


    • Great insight about ‘Interstellar’ and what it does right (and wrong), scientifically speaking.There are a lot of concepts found on this book that really ask for an interactive approach; if this book were transformed into a tablet app, where people could fiddle around with black hole models and other structures, it would be perfect!


    • Good at some parts, at convincing that most of the movie is based on currently known science, or speculation based on what we know, still within the realm of "reasonable". 3 stars because some parts could be explained better.


    • If you liked the movie, you'll like this book as it delves into the science of actual specific scenes in the movie. It is dense at times, but I muddled through.


    • Що цікаво, чим далі заглиблююсь, осідлавши своє солодкаво-аматорське захоплення наукою, у розділи книги Кіпа Торна, тим більше усвідомлюю, наскільки розходяться криві авторських задумів. Кіп Торн як автор і Крістофера/Джона Нолана як автор(и) накреслюють, як виявляється, щ [...]


    • Before seeing the film and up to the point when the credits rolled, I had people including my film date ask me if the science was real? And my answer was always, "Well, they'd have to consult a guy like Kip Thorne." Roll credits. Then, Kip's name was there with 3 other Exec. Producers. Not merely scientific consultant but Exec. Producer.OK, so a couple decades back I purchased a copy of Gravitation, aka MTW ( only notes lead author), and a close friend was his first grad student along with Feynm [...]
