Transcript of Interstellar
Humanity cannot live on Earth much longer. There is not enough food, and all that can be grown is corn. Even the corn is starting to fail. It is essential to find a new planet for humanity to continue. This will require a crew of astronauts to travel beyond our galaxy through a wormhole. There are two plans for this project. Projet A and B. (Ben Kendrick)
While the Endurance team is away, Dr. Brand will continue to work on an advanced equation that, if solved, will allow humans to harness fifth-dimensional physics – specifically gravity. If Brand succeeds, NASA would be able to defy our traditional understanding of physics and launch an enormous space station (carrying the remainder of Earth’s surviving population) into space. The very facility that Cooper and Murph stumble upon at the beginning of the film isn’t just a NASA research station, it’s a construction site for humankind’s space-traveling ark. (Ben Kendrick)
If Brand fails in his calculation and/or the Endurance take too much time investigating potential homeworlds, NASA has a bank of fertilized human embryos that can be used to ensure humanity’s survival. To ensure genetic diversity, NASA procured DNA from a wide range of sources. In this scenario, the Endurance team would settle down on the most habitable planet and raise the first generation of embryos – with each subsequent generation helping to raise a new set of embryos as well as reproduce naturally. (Ben Kendrick)
is based on the ideas of theoretical physicist Kip Thorne – specifically the notion that while we observe the universe in three dimensions, there could be at least five dimensions. In certain theories, it is posited that certain forces (in this case gravity) bleed through dimensions – meaning that, based on Newton’s Laws, what we perceive as a finite calculation could actually have infinite implications. (Ben Kendrick)
In this presentation of Interstellar, I will be explaining the plot, science, and the filming behind this movie. Let's begin!
The Fourth and Fifth Dimensions
The Science Behind Interstellar
There's a lot of science in
. I will explain a little bit about black holes, wormholes, space-time, and dimensions. If you like to find out more, I suggest reading
The Science Behind Interstellar
by Kip Thorne. He helped to make sure that the science in
was as close to real science as possible.

is a very complex film. It can be confusing if you do not know the science behind it. It is truely a stunning movie. I hope you have enjoyed this presentation.
Black holes are a big part of Interstellar. This is how they work.
This is Gargantua. The main blackhole in
. It has a mass 100 million times larger than that of the Sun. It is 10 billion light years away from Earth, and several planets orbit it. It also rotates at 99.8 % of the speed of light!
Iceland was chosen to represent two extraterrestrial planets: one covered in ice, and the other covered in water. A two-week Iceland shoot was scheduled,and a crew of approximately350 people, including 130 locals, worked on it. Locations included the Svínafellsjökull glacier and the town of Klaustur.

Creating the wormhole and a supermassive rotating black hole was not an easy task. Kip Thorne collaborated with visual effects supervisor Paul Franklin and a team of 30 people at Double Negative. Thorne would provide pages of deeply sourced theoretical equations to the artists, who then wrote new CGI rendering software based on these equations to create accurate computer simulations of the gravitational lensing caused by these phenomena. Some individual frames took up to 100 hours to render, and resulted in 800 terabytes of data. The resulting visual effect provided Thorne with new insight into the effects of gravitational lensing andaccretion disks surrounding black holes, which led to the publication of two scientific papers (WRINKLES IN SPACETIME)
The film officially premiered on October 26, 2014 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, California (Rebecca Ford). Interstellar was released on home video on March 31, 2015 in both the United Kingdom and United States.(John Latchem)
Interstellar grossed $188 million in North America and $487 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $675 million, against a production budget of $165 million. Calculating in all expenses, Deadline.com estimated that the film made a profit of $47.16 million. (Mike Fleming Jr )
