John Batchelor and I welcomed Marc Millis (www.tauzero.aero) to discuss the movie “Interstellar,” worm holes, black holes, event horizons, folding space, advanced propulsion, and the realities of faster than light travel. We talked about some of the representations in the movie plus John also brought in some details from the older movie from the late 1990s, “Event Horizon.” Marc explained the theory behind worm holes, the need for massive amounts of negative energy, and the challenge in keeping the worm hole opening open once the starship has entered the worm hole. Also discussed were some of the liberties taken with science in representing science issues in the movie.
