Professor Kip Thorne's Public Lecture - A Century of Relativity
What's New in Black Holes? 'Interstellar' Physicist Kip Thorne Tells All
There are books we love and books we hate, and then there are books that irrevocably change our lives; for me, that book is "Black Holes and Time Warps" by Kip Thorne. I first heard the name Kip Thorne during my third year working on an undergraduate degree in physics, when my friend Dan gave me a beat-up paperback copy of Thorne's book, " Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy. When Dan gave me the book we were both neck-deep in thermodynamics, stellar spectra, Brownian motion and all the things we had to cram into our heads to earn our degrees. It was a tough year, and a tough following year, and I think even then I had the sneaking suspicion that research wasn't where I belonged. I was feeling out of my place and out of my league among many of my peers, and I feared science would inevitably slip out of my life. But when I cracked open "Black Holes and Time Warps," the joy that had made me pursue science in the first place came back to me. It dives into what scientists know about power of gravity, the nature of space-time and the possibility of worm holes ; it touches on Einstein's theory of special relativity and some particle physics, among other things.
This book explains, among other thing, a very cool theory about using stable wormholes to create a time machine. Now if we could only make wormholes stable, manipulate them, and pass through them safely without radiation feedback

Kip Thorne has recently been in the public eye as the physicist who brought real-world physics to the science fiction epic "Interstellar. - It provides an illustrated overview of the history and development of black hole theory, from its roots in Newtonian mechanics until the early s.
