Dr. Kip Thorne

To prepare for this episode, we had to do a little homework: see the movie Interstellar. As we were walking out of the theater, we knew we had to invite Kip Thorne back to the show.  As Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus, at the California Institute of Technology, Kip Thorne is the scientific advisor and executive producer of Interstellar.  Listen to the show as Kip joins us to discuss Interstellar, the science in the movie, and how it might inspire us to dream about our future.
