Kip S. Thorne Keynote Topics
The Science of Interstellar
Interstellar, by filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic journey far beyond our solar system. However, in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist who helped Nolan in the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the amazing events of the film and the stunning images never before attempted are based on real science. Thorne shares his experiences working as a scientific advisor in the film and then goes on to science itself in this fascinating keynote speech.
Black Holes & Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy
Kip Thorne, a physicist awarded the Nobel Prize in 2017 and executive producer of Interstellar, has spent 30 years of his life seeking to understand the legacy left by the great Albert Einstein for the next generations. This great work, summarized in his bestselling book and in this conference, will take you through the fascinating world of black holes, white dwarfs, neutron stars, gravitational waves, singularities, wormholes and even time machines.
