Neil DeGrasse Tyson Tweeted A Surprisingly Good Review For The Science Of 'Interstellar'

Unlike his scientific review of “Gravity,” Neil deGrasse Tyson is full of praise for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.”

The astrophysicist reviewed the new film via Twitter Sunday night, posting his thoughts to his 2.61 million followers.

In addition to pointing out how many of the scientists or engineers in the film are played by women (half), he also discussed the factuality behind worm holes, black holes, and relativity of time.

“Interstellar” raked in $US47.5 million at the box office over the weekend  —  still not as great as the $US55 million “Gravity” opening weekend.
