The minor touches that go into the movie itself and adding authenticity to make it look more realistic are just amazing. This and the very pictures themselves of the universe were extremely realistic and interesting because of what we have been learning in class.

Further since it was an actual movie, rather than one made primarily for science, I began wondering if it would soon drift away from authenticity for something I was more used to and found a little more interesting. Ironically to my surprise the movie did seem to stay true to science throughout (until I actually did research on the internet I thought it was ALL correct, I wanted to see if there were any differences), while at the same time staying suspenseful developing interesting themes, and most importantly, keeping me attached to the screen.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
