When I’m not pretending to be a writer, I like to pretend that I have a slightly firmer grasp on the Universe than the average chimpanzee. Then I watch a new video by Lawrence Krauss and realize that I may even have less of one.

My hairless-apelike mediocre grasp aside I have always been fascinated by astronomy. Oddly though, I’ve never been a big sci-fi fan despite my fascination. ‘Star Trek: TNG’ and ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ are pretty much the limits of science-fiction knowledge. According to my sci-fi experience, the one thing ‘Interstellar’ may be missing is a colon.

All that being said, I am completely buying into the hype of this movie and the last trailer has me chomping at the bits to see it. Plus, you know, Christopher Nolan.
