Christopher Nolan tried to make a scientific fictional movie but in near future, it might become a reality.Interstellar explains earth may become an inhabitable planet and in order to save humanity from extinction, we may need to search for a nearby planet where life is possible. Everything and anything portrayed in this movie is not random incidents made for the sake of the movie. They are all paradox theories among which one of the concepts was recently proven. The existence of a black hole proven in recent times

Interstellar plot


A team of scientists must find the human race a new home after Earth is struck with worldwide food shortfalls and corn is the most valuable food. Using a mysterious wormhole, they explore strange new worlds and could find a home to save the human race.

N.A.S.A.’s last hope looks to Coop, Brand, Romilly, and TARS under the direction of Professor Brand to search for answers in the deepest corners of space while dealing with Murphy’s Law. 

In Earth’s future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand, a brilliant N.A.S.A. physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth’s population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former N.A.S.A. pilot Cooper and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind’s new home.


The first breakthrough in the movie was the gravitational anomaly that cooper witnesses but it will be explained later wormhole is the passage in space due to the presence of singularity. Consider the space as a tight spreadsheet when a mass is kept over it there is a bulge in the sheet.

A black hole has the highest mass thus the presence of a black hole may result in a bulge in the sheet. Considering this phenomenon there is a lesser gap between 2 parallel layers creating a wormhole which refuses the actual time traveling from one  parallel space to another

The second breakdown is the Nolans portrayal of the black hole. It was quite a surprise it was similar to the real one discovered in recent times. This is because he studied the characteristics of a black hole, with heavier mass the higher the gravitational pull will be, even the photons are pulled towards the point of singularity. Thus is a bright circling light of the photons around the black hole

Relativity in time

The next concept that we can observe in the movie relativity in the time since the acceleration due to gravity is higher near the black hole the planet near to the black hole revolves at a higher velocity when compared to earth. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity at the higher velocity, the time is slower than actual thus there is a major time difference in time in millers planet to the earth. According to the movie every hour on the planet is more than a year on earth 


 It the point of nothingness, though the black hole has a heavy mass still the size is relatively small the bulge in the stretched sheet so hight that it leads to the point of singularity. All the cosmic objects are said to be attracted to the point of singularity. All the galaxy in the universe is continuously in motion with respect to the overall mass of the whole and move towards singularity similar to the way in which earth is closing towards the sun.

4th Dimension cube (Tesseract)

In the climax, Cooper falls into a 4th dimension cube in Interstellar which is said to be created by the future persons from where the data required to save the earth is obtained with the help of people from the future. The confusion arises is only if cooper saves the earth then only there is future, this is explained by the bootstrap paradox where the existence of an object cannot be determined.

Followed by this the gravitational anomaly can be explained since the 4th dimension in the 4th dimension cube is nothing bu gravity. By which cooper was able to pass the data from the fourth dimension through time since it was located near the point of singularity and time is relative at that point.

Coopers suite

The final scene in Interstellar shows the cylindrical suite made by Cooper’s daughter to carry civilization into space the artificial gravity is possible in such a spacecraft due to centrifugal force. By a constant speed of rotation which produces an acceleration equivalent to the acceleration due to gravity in the earth.

The breakdown of this movie shows the effort behind the scene to make the movie a logical storyline with a classic Nolan’s signature on the movie-making Interstellar a masterpiece and a box office successful way back in 2014, most of the concepts explained through the movie were just hypothesis.
