Last, but not least, there seem to be some problems with it Interstellar‘s bittersweet ending – the one that says that Hathaway’s brand has not only managed to cross the orbit of a supermassive black hole, but has actually found an habitable planet in its orbit. Once again, the concepts behind such great narrative twists are not too far-fetched. More specifically, because we know so little about black holes in general, let alone the spaces surrounding them, all representations of such states are purely theoretical.
Paul Barstow in particular wonders if a planet near such a large black hole could really survive. “There is no reason why they couldn’t [orbit a black hole]Even though no one ever found one, “he explained.” The problem would be how stable a system is. I don’t know enough about the calculations. So it’s a bit difficult to say if you could have it. Provided that everything in orbit is outside the safety limit, this is quite possible. What is more likely is a star orbiting and a planetary system around that star. Any planetary system connected only to a black hole would likely be consumed. “
Lee Billings has similar problems. “I think Interstellar is a film for physicists, not for planetary scientists. And I think you can tell by what they emphasize, what accurate and true science is and what isn’t. There are many problems with the planets, “said Billings.” For example, there is this planet with huge tides, but the water itself is no shallower than your ankles or knees. It’s not clear what causes these crazy tides, maybe the black hole, but if it pulled so hard, it would manifest itself in other ways besides miles of waves. “
Honestly, if you have to bend the rules a bit for this water planet to happen InterstellarWe like to admit it because it remains one of the most exciting creations in modern film history. With that in mind, we sincerely hope that Brand and Cooper will try this desert planet.
