Kip Thorne

“If you have a wormhole, then you can turn them into time machines for going backward in time.”



Kip Thorne is a renowned theoretical physicist, known for his many contributions in the field of gravitational physics and astrophysics. He received his B.S at Caltech and a Ph.D. from the University of Princeton.

Thorne is co-founder of LIGO project (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) which recently discovered gravitational waves in a binary black hole. He and his students invented technology to control the quantum behavior of human-sized objects, and they pioneered the modern theory of wormholes and time travel.

Also, Kip provided the scientific vision for Christopher Nolan’s film Interstellar, and served as its science advisor and executive producer. He also introduced wormholes into modern science fiction and movies through his work on Carl Sagan’s novel and film Contact. He is the author of the bestselling book Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein’s Outrageous Legacy. To accompany Nolan’s film, he has written The Science of Interstellar, which explains real science in movie.

Thorne was elected to both the US National Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Sciences, and for his science accomplishments, he has been awarded the Swiss Albert Einstein Medal and the UNESCO Niels Bohr Gold Medal. He is the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus at Caltech.
