How much time passed between
[Show spoiler]when Cooper and his daughter found NASA and the launch of Cooper and crew's trip to Saturn?

They must use a really cheap binding

Seriously though, what do you mean? Are you saying that the last part of the book is not accurate?

The two or three chapters from the moment Copper goes into the black hole is mostly speculation on the part of Thorne. Most of the book by before that is usually real TRUE science and a little educated guess.

Oh, I see. Thanks, I've been meaning to pick up that book for a while.

As opposed to theoretical physics in general, you mean?

As opposed to being TRUE based on real science. The ending was speculation on the part of Thorne with very little facts to claim they were indeed true.

I see there hasn't been any activity in here for almost 3 weeks, but tonight I ended up Interstellar for the 2nd time and boy, what a difference a 2nd viewing can make! I finally wrote my review (2.5 months in waiting) below. I wrapped the whole thing in a spoiler even though there are no specific plot spoilers as far as I can tell:

[Show spoiler]Seeing "Interstellar" for the second time tonight, I couldn't help but notice that a lot of my questions were finally answered in an illuminating fashion. It's a big, bold, ambitious sci fi film and probably will become a modern classic soon enough. There's science, spirituality, existentialism, history, all wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic theme that combines 2001: A Space Odyssey, Contact, Metropolis, Star Wars and even Star Trek. Sure, there's a lot of theory involved in the science used in Interstellar, from quantum mechanics to astrobiology, and I'm sure scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson approves of this film, but the resounding effect I had from seeing this film again was realizing that the script was so brilliantly written that there was a reason why I was so confused the first time I saw this picture. Of course, this film didn't get a single nomination for best screenplay of the year for any award, but that doesn't matter. I admired the effort for technical authenticity that the Nolan bros. achieved with this film and the whole idea of the combination of gravity, love and time being the panacea that solves the dilemma for the human race is astounding. That the human survival instinct to exist, to go beyond the boundaries of our planet in light of destruction, to build new worlds in other star systems and to transcend our primitive human systems can somehow be all achievable is a great inspiration to me...... After the movie ended and Marc, John, Jake and myself were all sitting in the empty theater watching the credits, the projectionist appeared in the window behind us and we instinctively waved at him. Then something happened that I never before encountered. He opened the casement window and asked us permission if he could turn on the house lights. Then we all started raving about how this was our second time watching the film, to which he said it was his 5th time and how every subsequent viewing reinforced his love for Interstellar. Here we are having a conversation with the projectionist (aka: the Wizard of (Movie) Oz) from the window up above. Incredible.

2nd viewing does make a big difference. I agree.

"Fascinating" (as Spock would say).

I thought I just saw my doppelgänger. Perhaps you are my clone.

Seeing this thread reminds me of a question I wanted to asked. What's the distance between those planets, and the distance of the last planet to the Gargantua? Different conditions (temperature, etc), yet they seems very close, like only hours of travel time.

It takes months for them to go to Saturn.
There has been an awakening, have you felt it? The Dark side.. And the Light..

I loved how the Government schools
[Show spoiler]indoctrinated schoolkids into believing that the Space Program was a sham in order to bankrupt other countries, its nice foil for Cooper who had himself never been outside of Earth's atmosphere. While Science and Faith are always polar opposites of one another its nice to see characters keep the faith of believing the future was still worth fighting for.

One of my all-time favourites for sure. But that is largely to do with Hans Zimmer's incredible score, which elevates the experience to a new level.
