O knihe The Science of Interstellar od Kipa S. Thorna
Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan, took us on a fascinating journey beyond the limits of our solar system. Professor Kip Thorne, a Nobel Prize winner in Physics who was the film’s science advisor, shows us in The Science of Interstellar that the film’s engaging scenes and stunning visuals are based on real science. In the chapters on black holes or space travel, Professor Thorne describes the laws of physics that govern our universe. The book is in English.
