Today, the world of science has made us one of those gifts, able to of cowering the heart, desencajarnos the jaw, making us dream with the unknown and increase the feeling of insignificance of our existence in the midst of the universe. Today we were able to see for the first time a photograph of a black hole.
After years of effort dominated by theories, calculations, tests, successes and mistakes, the team responsible for the Telescope Event Horizon (EHT) has managed to capture in a snapshot, the immense black hole, four million times larger than the Sun, that rises in the center of our galaxy.
But we are in Espinof, and it becomes especially difficult to resist to link this event with the seventh art; more specifically, with the fantastic jewel of the science fiction ‘Interstellar’ Christopher Nolan and, inside it, with the impressive representation embodied by the british director and his associates of the astronomical phenomenon that we are dealing with.
An image, saving the obvious distances —negligible if we consider that what has been seen in the feature film of 2014 is state only at the root of theories without corroboration, we can qualify for surprisingly successful if we compare it with the reference that we have, thanks to the EHT; resemblance that has not gone unnoticed on Twitter, as we can see in publications such as this Christian Schmitz.
This does nothing more than confirm the immense work done by the theoretical physicist u.s. Kip Thorne —winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics—, home advisor Nolan to give way to the rigorous vis the science fiction starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, who took as a basis the ideas of Albert Einstein on the relationship between space and time, and the distortions existing between them to provide solidity to the script with his vision and knowledge on items as diverse as wormholes or string theory.
in Addition to everything mentioned in the first paragraph of this text, we now have a new reason to appreciate it even more if it is that, beyond any doubt —and, of course, in my point of view— is one of the best films of science fiction of all time. An exercise in narrative and visually impeccable that, as we suspected, it has the same strength in the film as in relation to theoretical physics.
