My Footage from the South Pole used in “The Science of Interstellar” Documentary

Coinciding with the release of Christopher Nolan’s new movie “Interstellar”, Warner Brothers has released a new documentary called “The Science of Interstellar” – and my footage is in it! The documentary covers the science roots behind the hollywood film, including science looking at the Cosmic Microwave Background. During my time living and working at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica I took a bit of footage while snowmobiling out to the Bicep2 Microwave Telescope. Gemini Productions, the producer of the documentary, found my footage on my YouTube Channel, and licensed a few seconds of it for this documentary.  Glad to be able to help out and be very very minorly involved with Interstellar!
