How You Can Turn an INTERSTELLAR Wormhole Into a Time Machine

When traveling between the stars, time is a resource, just like fuel or food.

Christopher Nolan’s next epic Interstellar warps into theaters tomorrow, promising a human story wrapped up in sweeping cosmic vistas and purportedly hyper-accurate science. Having seen the movie, I can tell you that, yes, everything is epic. Even the science. (This is where we tell you that there might be some Interstellar spoilers in today’s episode. You’ve been warned.)

In my latest Because Science, I explore just a fraction of the stylized science that you’ll find in Interstellar, namely, how we could use wormholes to traverse the ‘verse and travel back in time.

Alright, alright, alright.
