Executive producer and theoretical physicist Kip Thorne presents a journey through the otherworldly science behind Christopher Nolan’s multiaward-winning movie Interstellar.

The Academy Award-winning film Interstellar, from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic voyage far beyond our solar system. Yet in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the physicist who assisted Nolan on the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the movie’s jaw-dropping events and stunning, never-before-attempted visuals are grounded in real science.

Thorne shares his experiences working as the science adviser on the film and then moves on to the science itself. In chapters on wormholes, black holes, interstellar travel, and much more, Thorne’s scientific insights—many of them triggered during the actual scripting and shooting of Interstellar—describe the physical laws that govern our universe and the truly astounding phenomena that those laws make possible.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Eric Michael Summerer is an excellent choice for the narration of this challenging text…Summerer’s performance is straightforward—yet warm and stylish. The technical material covered in the audiobook demands focused attention and may be best for listeners with profound scientific interests. Enlightening and easier to grasp is the story of the development of the Hollywood film, during which a battle was fought between those who advocated for scientific accuracy and others who were driven by the goal of substantial box-office receipts.”
