Question: Why Did They Go To Miller’S Planet?

How far is Gargantua from Earth?

10 billion light-yearsThe spaceship Endurance’s destination is Gargantua, a fictional supermassive black hole with a mass 100 million times that of the sun.

It lies 10 billion light-years from Earth and is orbited by several planets.

Gargantua rotates at an astounding 99.8 percent of the speed of light..

Is Miller’s Planet possible?

Yes the science of Miller’s Planet is plausible and possible. Kip Thorne is one of the top physicists working in the area of general relativity. You don’t get better than that. The presence of the tidal waves suggests the planet is smooth without mountains or valleys to break up these never ending tidal super tsunamis.

How did Cooper know bran was in love with Edmunds?

In fact it’s not what she says but how she says it: on the ship, the first time Cooper asks her to tell him about Edmund, she says a purposely very simple description (“he’s a physicist”) but she smiles to herself. Cooper catches this smile and that’s his clue that she has feelings for Edmund.

Why did Mann kill Cooper?

The whole reason Mann attempted to kill Cooper was because he needed the Endurance to reach Edmund’s, and Cooper wanted to use it to go back to Earth. Mann would’ve said Cooper’s death was an accident and tactfully bring up using the Endurance to go to Edmund’s instead with the rest of the crew to colonize.

Why did Mann kill Romilly?

It seems obvious to me, due to hesitance to allow Romley or TARS to work on it, that Mann programmed KIPP to self-destruct once a a human scanned their finger print. Mann would have done this to eliminate as much of the crew as possible to allow him to steal their ship and go back to Earth.

Are black holes real?

There is consensus that supermassive black holes exist in the centers of most galaxies. The presence of a black hole can be inferred through its interaction with other matter and with electromagnetic radiation such as visible light.

Could Doyle have survived?

Although Doyle is presumed drowned after being struck by the tidal wave on Miller’s planet, his suit appears intact when the Ranger leaves, meaning it is remotely possible he could have survived the impact and is merely unconscious. Given the extreme time dilation on Miller’s planet, a rescue is very possible.

How tall are the waves in interstellar?

1,200 metersIn his new book “The Science of ‘Interstellar'” (W.W. Norton & Company, 2014), Thorne goes into detail about the physics that underlies the awesome phenomena explored in the movie, including black holes, time dilation, a disease that could decimate food crops on Earth and an alien planet with 4,000-foot-tall (1,200 …

When did interstellar release?

November 6, 2014 (Russia)Interstellar/Release date

How much time has passed on Miller’s planet?

It is stated in Interstellar that each one hour spent on Miller’s Planet equals seven years earth time. Cooper and his colleagues spend some time on the planet, and by the time they return, Romilly says that he has been waiting for 23 years, which means they must have spend three hours on the planet (highly doubted).

Do astronauts live longer?

If that sounds unremarkable, consider this: the mean of the predicted life expectancy for American men born in the same years as the 12 Apollo astronauts is 59.5 years, which means that as a group the surviving spacemen have lived for almost two and a half decades longer than their contemporaries.

How did Edmunds die?

After finding his planet’s conditions to be promising for human life, Edmunds sent a “thumb’s up” signal back to NASA on Earth. He subsequently settled into hypersleep and awaited to be rescued. During this time, a rockslide occurred and destroyed his landing pod, causing Edmunds’ death.

What were two problems with Miller’s planet?

The extreme time dilation and the kilometer-high tidal waves that circle the planet non-stop. It’s unlikely that with such an intense erosion there would be islands or any kind of solid formation above water, and the waves make impossible to build or install any kind of mining, agricultural or habitational facilities.

How is 1 hour in space equal to 7 years on earth?

Originally Answered: Is it actually possible that spending 1 hour on a distant planet is equal to 7 years on Earth? Absolutely. Einstein’s theory of special relativity proves it, or at least it hasn’t been disproven yet. Time is relative and directly effected by the stretching of space/time hence (time).

Do you age faster in space?

Previous research has shown that spending time in space causes bone density loss, immune dysfunction, cardiovascular issues such as stiffening of arteries, and loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength in both humans and rodent models. These changes resemble aging in people age on Earth, but happen more quickly.

Is Gargantua a real black hole?

According to the report, Gargantua in Interstellar is an incredibly close representation of an actual black hole, and while it does seem quite different from the reconstructed image of the M87 black hole that we saw yesterday, the two are quite similar in multiple ways.

What happened on Miller’s planet?

Miller was selected to land on this world. However, within a relative hour after her arrival, she encountered one of the massive tidal waves circling the planet. She was unable to negotiate the encounter and her landing pod was destroyed.

How long is 1 hour in space?

0.0026 secondsThe cosmic clock never budged from its birth place; we have and when we return, we are like the twin astronaut, younger than his Earth brother.) That number times 1 hour is 0.0026 seconds.
