Neil deGrasse Tyson gives "Interstellar" a surprise science review

"Never look to me for opinions on new films. All I do is highlight the science one might or might not find in them"

Neil deGrasse Tyson appeared on "CBS This Morning" to discuss Christopher Nolan's latest sci-fi blockbuster "Interstellar." The cosmologist also unleashed a series of impromptu tweets about the film and whether the science holds up.

There are no (real) spoilers and Tyson makes it clear that this is not a review of whether or not he likes the film, it's merely an explanation of the science. (And "Interstellar" seems to get better marks than "Gravity.")
