In Interstellar, an ambitious, thrilling, emotional though bumpy sci-fi trip through space and time, Christopher Nolan focuses his lens on two powerful forces: gravity and love. The film begins with an extended set up in the-not-so-distant-future to show us that our planet is dying.

Myths of Physics: 2. Gravity Is Much Weaker Than Electromagnetism

Victor Stenger | Posted 10.26.2014 | Science

Gravity is so weak at the atomic and subatomic level because the masses of atoms and subatomic particles are so small. It is strong on the planetary scale because the masses of planets are so large.

Dr. Sten Odenwald

Much of modern physics has been about exploring inherently invisible things, which seem to be far more common than the obvious things we experience with our senses. Yet these invisible things follow rigorous laws that allow us to test their existence in many ways. Here is a very short list of some of the "invisible" things that we routinely work with.

Toward a Quantum Theory of Gravity? (Part 1)

Mario Livio | Posted 06.16.2014 | Science
Mario Livio

If confirmed, the recently detected potential ripples from the Big Bang represent an imprint on the cosmic microwave background by gravitational waves. Those gravitational waves are produced through a quantum process, providing, for the first time (again, if confirmed), evidence that gravity is governed by quantum mechanics. This point cannot be overemphasized.

Killing Einstein's God

Amir Aczel | Posted 06.14.2014 | Religion
Amir Aczel

Einstein believed in something like Spinoza's "God": a powerful entity that transcends the world. To Einstein, "God" was the maker of the laws of physics that he, Einstein, saw as his life's role to uncover. This is far from the "God" of organized Western religions, to be sure, but it is equally far from Lawrence Krauss "universe from nothing."

No, the reason I liked Gravity is because it was short. The entire movie clocks in at 85 minutes. I pressed the "play" button on my DVD remote. And an hour-and-a-half later I was back at my job as Jaden Smith's personal assistant.
