Success of talks: Science of Interstellar

The talks on the science of Interstellar were a huge success. In my two presentations, the rooms were so crowded that there was not possibly enough room to fit everybody wanting to hear about the fascinating science depicted in the movie: general relativity, extrasolar planets, curved spaces, black holes, wormholes, time bending, extra dimensions and more. In the first presentation at IAG, we had chairs for ~120 people and we got more nearly 200 people! At Parque Cientec, they had room for about 60 people and there nearly 100 people in the room.

Very happy with the interest of the public in hearing about the intersections of cutting edge physics and science fiction. Stay tuned for more news!
