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.
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.
Because, the test firings of Saturn V in Alabama used to blow windows miles away.
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.)
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.
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.
Ice cannot hang on an environment as loosely and as easily as it is, it looks like some crazy magic.
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.
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.
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.
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.
