Has Interstellar Travel Already Happened?

Updated on March 26, 2016

When movie fans took the time to digest Christopher Nolan's latest thought provoking science fiction opus Interstellar, many shut their brains off and simply enjoyed the visual feast that Nolan provided.

But what about those of us who think about movies like these more deeply? The science used in Interstellar was surprisingly true to life and shockingly plausible. If a person was able to find a wormhole in space, it could make the idea of travelling to other galaxies much more palatable.

There is a school of thought that believes in the possibility of interstellar travel and thinks that we are much closer to an era where it will become commonplace. Hollywood has explore space travel for decades within similar films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Total Recall and Contact. Many believe that these films are not nearly as farfetched as they may seem.

What these movies all have in common is that they each use a combination of science fiction and space travel to express deeper truths about the human condition. Interstellar was about the importance of family and the importance of looking beyond what is best for your self. It was about having the ability to put aside your own wants and needs to then do what is best for the world at large.

Could Hollywood be using these films to send us a subliminal message? While Interstellar may appear to be mere popcorn science fiction geared towards entertaining a mass audience, this film could may well be hiding space travel secrets in plain sight of the viewer.

Perhaps one day the rich and elite will be able to escape Planet Earth and develop their own civilizations elsewhere, as they did in the movie Elysium. Or maybe people will start to be arrested before they have had a chance to commit a crime, much like the plot of Minority Report.

Interstellar could very well be one of these films, a seemingly innocuous work of science fiction that does not go through the trouble of hiding very real ideas of space exploration. Only time will tell if this is true or not, but there are many observers who already believe that the plots of our science fiction movies hold way more truth than we could have ever imagined.

      They have a transporter in star trek. Do you think they did not get this from aliens? The band the Beatles. How did they know about the diamonds in the sky? How many people can you tell the sky is falling and not go crazy. People are not able to handle the truth.
