The team behind the Sci-Fi movie ‘Interstellar’ lately explained the science behind their impressive creation of the black hole in the movie.
In the film, the black hole was called Gargantua that was made by Double Negative, a special effects group based in London with the help of Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist of Caltech.
A computer code was used by the makers of the film to come up with images of the black hole and other objects. Meanwhile, the researchers also explained how the code was able to bring about improvements in science. This code has helped the team of the movie to understand that when the camera is in proximity to a black hole that spins very quickly, it produces extraordinary space surfaces.
The code that the makers of the film showed parts of the accretion disk that swings over and below the shadow of the black hole. Also, it shaped front of the equator of the shadow producing the split show which became one of the trademark images of the hit movie.
The movie may be a work of fiction but this gives viewers a remarkably accurate view of the black hole, the film makers say.
