"Interstellar" has a Stellar look at Black Holes!

Thanks to Noah S. for giving me the link to a Wired article and video about the new movie Interstellar. Kip Thorne, a world famous expert on black holes and general relativity, consulted with the movie makers and their special effects and graphics teams to produce the best simulations of what Einstein's field equations from general relativity produce for black holes and worm holes. The graphics are stunning, and Thorne expects to get several research publications out of this because of the details they learned by seeing what a black hole should really look like! Please check it out, and be ready to be amazed!
