10 Biggest Mistakes in The Interstellar You Had No Clue About

Interstellar is a great movie and it falls under a genre called science fiction. It is not a documentary that should be very accurate. Hence, we can easily notice some major things wrong with Interstellar. Some scenes completely defy physics and play with science like the monkey plays with the weasel. Go ahead and see if they make any sense at all.

1. There is a lot of light on the Miller's planet.

1. There is a lot of light on the Miller's planet.

Yeah, so perhaps many of you would raise a brow and ask, 'So?' but you got to understand this. The planet revolves around a back hole. Not a star. In our words, not some sun. A black hole doesn't give out much light. Certainly not as much as they have shown in the movie.

2. The three stage launch of Saturn V should have blown windows of the office

2. The three stage launch of Saturn V should have blown windows of the office

Because, the test firings of Saturn V in Alabama used to blow windows miles away.

3. There is a planet orbiting the black hole which cannot be justified

3. There is a planet orbiting the black hole which cannot be justified

If the planet orbiting the black hole was so close to the black hole that it experienced a slow down in time, it would have been ripped apart by a force called the tidal force (since the planet also happens to be well within the Roche limit.)

4. There are tsunamis on the planet orbiting the black hole. Which would practically be impossible.

4. There are tsunamis on the planet orbiting the black hole. Which would practically be impossible.

A planet that has a water surface throughout and a gravitational force 130% that of earth can surely not have tsunamis unless it violates all laws of physics.

5. The crew makes hasty decisions on arrival at another galaxy.

5. The crew makes hasty decisions on arrival at another galaxy.

That's depicted as easy as a group of friends that go sightseeing and decide, 'Whew! That looks a nice place. Let's go there.' It's a damn space mission. You don't chalk it out like that.

6. One planet has frozen clouds.

6. One planet has frozen clouds.

Ice cannot hang on an environment as loosely and as easily as it is, it looks like some crazy magic.

7. An astronaut finds it a good idea to jump in a black hole.

7. An astronaut finds it a good idea to jump in a black hole.

I understand that it is a movie and it is necessary for the plot to move on, to get an Oscar or whatever, but what real astronaut would jump in a black hole? The descent couldn't be stopped and as all the paths in a black hole lead to one point, you cannot just pop inside one and stay in touch with your mates out there.

8. The wormhole would play with the solar system in a bizarre manner

8. The wormhole would play with the solar system in a bizarre manner

With a mass more than extra larger than the sun which by the way is very large, the wormhole found near the Saturn would bring about a lot of effects on the Solar System, but in the movie it decides to stay as benign as a testicular cancer would be to a woman.

9. Cooper and his space shuttle pass an accretion disk like they would pass the Central Park instead of burning like some unfortunate popcorn.

9. Cooper and his space shuttle pass an accretion disk like they would pass the Central Park instead of burning like some unfortunate popcorn.

Accretion disks emit large amounts X-ray radiation and UV rays due to the immense gravitational potential energy in them. Passing the disk that closely would mean getting roasted, baked, fried - you name it! But Cooper passes it without even getting a hair burnt.

10. How can one create a wormhole to survive in it?

10. How can one create a wormhole to survive in it?

This isn't even tough. How can you look for water for a couple of months without drinking water? How can you create a wormhole required to survive without perishing while doing so.

Loved this? Spread it out then
