    Yeah just some simple concepts though like how they mention slingshotting, which of course refers to the slingshot effect

    Same with the neutron star they were planning to slingshot around, and how they avoided it because of time dilation, also I heard from somewhere that a teaspoon of dirt from a neutron star is 10000 tonnes, so yeah it would have a pretty intense gravitational pull

    Also with how time dilation occurs

    And that massive wave being a consequence of Gargantua's gravitational pull

    Have I missed anything?

    think thats it, maybe how they counteract the 'zero' g-forces when in space by spinning the spacecraft

    Also how when the endeavour (if that's what it was called) stayed in the same position over time, which showed that it was in a geo-stationary orbit

    also, there is a flaw in the movie, when they are on the planet with the immense tidal waves, they only require the single space ship to escape its gravity which is IIRC 30% more than that of Earth, although escaping Earth gravity required a multistage rocket...

    Yeah haha

    And on top of that they've been in space for so long experiencing no gravity

    I've seen a video where they land on earth (Doco with brian cox) after 6 months and can't even sit up

    These guys land on the planet, can walk and show that they can feel that the gravity is greater than that of earths

    I guess some things couldn't have been correct in order to fit everything into the movie

    and i'm surprised they are not affected by the sun's radiation

    Yeah true, then again their predictions as to what might happen if we were to enter one may not be entirely true

    true, no one knows what is inside a blackhole as of today

    Sun in a different galaxy, maybe it doesn't emit as much radiation?

    + Those planets might have an atmosphere like ours protecting us from the radiation and things like coronal mass ejections (always remembered these as sun ejaculations)

    u have to consider the 8 month journey they took to get to the wormhole near Saturn

    When you say that then that would mean that whoever goes out into space is affected by this radiation, which they are clearly not as they come back in safe health

    The craft itself must have some mechanism to prevent the radiation from entering?

    I'm actually not sure tbh :/

    im not too sure either, but there has to be some form of impact of the full radiation blasting the ship un filtered by an atmosphere.

    Re: Interstellar Thread

    question regarding movie: at the end of the movie when cooper is reunited with Murph, why does she tell him to go to Amelia? Is it too help her with colonising the planet or to save her and bring her back to cooper station?

    Yeah I guess to help terraform the planet because Cooper Station is orbiting Saturn atm, so he has to go through the wormhole again, find the planet again, and find her, and eventually start bringing in the people on cooper station

    They would have been hopeless without CASE and TARS though

    I wish they actually had robots like that though
