New this month Question: While en route to Miller's planet, Romilly explains that due to relativity, for each hour they spend on the surface, 23 years will have passed on earth. Romilly stays aboard the ship, orbiting the planet. The crew goes in, has a tragic accident, then goes back to the ship. Now, this is what I don't get - Romilly has aged 23 years while they explored the planet for a couple of hours. How come Romilly aged at all? He was just outside the planet. Not on earth. There should be no major time difference between the crew and Romilly.Adi
Question: Why type of propulsion system does the Endurance use? It took 2 years for them to reach Saturn from Earth. Once they're in the other galaxy, the ship appears to travel between planets in mere hours/days. Also, it appears that the smaller shuttle craft was launched from Earth on a Saturn V type rocket, but later when leaving the surface of other planets, they have no such system.
Question: How exactly is the artificial gravity created on the Endurance? If it is due to the centripetal force created by the rotation, then isn't the gravitational force supposed to make them stand normal to the edge of the circle, considering the outward direction of the centripetal force?
Question: When the crew gets struck by the gigantic wave on the Miller's planet, CASE is shown to be able to morph into a wheel-like form, and rescue Amelia. If CASE is actually that fast, and that "versatile" to hold things while running, why can't he actually just move around the surface, and survey the wreckage of Miller's ship. That would have saved a lot of time, wouldn't it?
Question: SPOILER ALERT: What exactly happens in the end, does Cooper actually die and the Tesseract and the Cooper station were just parts of his dream? Please let me know if I might have missed something because the explanation that he travels back through the wormhole to Saturn does not make sense to me. He must have been sucked inside the Gargantua and died, surely?
