- Nine “Mysteries of #Interstellar to come...
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: If you can poke through a tesseract and touch books, why not just write a note & pass it through.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: Stars vastly outnumber Black Holes. Why is the best Earthlike planet one that orbits a Black Hole
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: Who in the universe would ever know the titles of all their books, from behind, on an bookshelf.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: How a pickup truck can drive with a flat tire among densely planted corn stalks taller than it.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: If wormholes exist among our planets, then why can’t one open up near Earth instead of Saturn.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: Gotta tell you. Mars (right next door) looks waay safer than those new planets they travelled to.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: If you crack your space helmet yet keep fighting, the Planet's air can’t be all that bad for you.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: Can’t imagine a future where escaping Earth via wormhole is a better plan than just fixing Earth.
- Mysteries of #Interstellar: In this unreal future, they teach unscientific things in science class. Oh, wait. That is real.

Movie was good. I didn't have a problem with the science in the movie. Not that I understood it. I liked that it was a movie that promoted human curiosity. Unlike Gravity which was more like "isn't it great God gave us a spaceship"

Unstoppable decline

A new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, finds a rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to be in an irreversible state of decline, with nothing to stop the glaciers in this area from melting into the sea.
