Some Thoughts About Star Wars Because of Interstellar

As a SAH/Homeschool Mom my adult conversations are few and far between.  I spend more time then I would like to admit watching and re-watching Star Wars and Frozen.  Over.  And over.  And OVER.  

Because my world revolves around Star Wars and Frozen -- I have come up with some interesting questions and theories about each.  

One I mentioned to my husband last weekend and blew his mind.  Then I did a Google search (sorry Bill, feel free to try Bing and see if that makes a difference) and couldn't find anything about it. 

Basically, because of the science explained in Interstellar -- wouldn't that make the Star Wars travel from planet to planet impossible? 

I'm not going to pretend to understand what Interstellar explained - but there was something about Einstein and Time Dilation and higher gravity fields.  And all that meant that travel to different planets would totally suck because 1 hour on one planet could equal 7 years on another planet. 

So how can Chewy and crew travel from planet to planet and reconcile things like relative time?

I do understand that the Star Wars Universe is not the same universe we live in.  But it does borrow a lot of our rules.  So maybe this is just one of those things we just have to assume they "fixed" or "solved" already.  Like space travel in general and artificial intelligence. 

It's just that this does seem a little trickier!

Any theories?? 

Welcome to our planet!

  1. Finally found someone with the same thought as me! I just watched interstellar for the first time 2 weeks ago and i loved everything about it. What a great film and one that actually makes the audience learn about space travel and how time is so important and changing. Then I watch the new Star Wars and like you said, there is no possible way that with all of the travelling they are doing from planet to planet, galaxy to galaxy that they have all stayed the same age, avoided blackholes that send you to a random dimension, and they can all breath just fine no matter what planet they are on. I enjoyed the movie but watching the two films so close together took some of the joy out of it because I was so entranced by all the new theories that were presented to me.
