Reading List for January 2023

Cover for the book 'The Science of Interstellar' by Kip S. Thorne

The start of February means that the year is well underway. February also means it’s time for me to provide my January reading list. Last month I listened to 13 books, and only one title was new. That new title is the one I want to highlight this month. The title is "The Science of Interstellar " by Kip S. Thorne.

If you have watched the movie Interstellar, then you might be interested to know that a lot of the science in the movie is actually plausible and true.

A journey through the otherworldly science behind Christopher Nolan’s award-winning film, Interstellar, from executive producer and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kip Thorne.

Interstellar, from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic voyage far beyond our solar system. Yet in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the Nobel prize-winning physicist who assisted Nolan on the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the movie’s jaw-dropping events and stunning, never-before-attempted visuals are grounded in real science. Thorne shares his experiences working as the science adviser on the film and then moves on to the science itself. In chapters on wormholes, black holes, interstellar travel, and much more, Thorne’s scientific insights—many of them triggered during the actual scripting and shooting of Interstellar—describe the physical laws that govern our universe and the truly astounding phenomena that those laws make possible.

If you get the audiobook, there is an accompanying PDF that will help you visualize some items from the book.

For February, there will be at least one new title, but beyond that, I am not 100% sure what I will end up reading.
