Gargantua was a "real" black hole, but with a little artificial extra "installed" into it. Neither does the movie say that all black holes are artificial, nor that this wasn't a real black hole. It is true that the "Bulk Beings" somehow planted the tesseract in the black hole in order to save Cooper and facilitate his time-defying communication with his ...

Several of the episodes were later recut into movies: In 1982, five feature length TV movies were put together from 10 complete episodes with portions of the first episode as introductory material.

You can find both scenes in Samson and the Seven Miracles of the World from 1961: In his eternal wandering Maciste finds himself in 13th Century China rescuing a Chinese prince and princess from the Tartars and leading the Chinese into a revolt against them.

It is not from a movie, but original footgae shot for a TV show called Futurescape. It's a segment called "Computer Chips In Your Brain" from an episode called "Robot Revolution".

I see no evidence that the film clips are anything other than original footage filmed for the TV show itself. You can see some additional segments from the same (Futurescape) series here which all follow a similar pattern; Repeatedly showing a few seconds of pre-filmed (acted) footage overlaid with CGI and "talking head" experts. Note that the clips contain ...

It is made clear in the light novels, only signals, like brain waves, can go back in time. When and what gets sent back is normally controlled by the Omega. It seems as long as Cage has control over when a signal is sent back, the Omega does not. Therefore, what you witness in the movie is basically a loop in consciousness experienced by Cage, which ...

I read a book on this once, but unfortunately i don't remember the name or author... Recovering dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes trapped in amber would be practically impossible. First of all, there's a good chance that whatever the mosquito last sucked blood from was not a dino. There goes a whole bunch of samples. Now, if somehow, you have a mosquito that ...

I'm inclined to say yes, based on new discoveries of fossils (and to be discovered fossils) and newly (to be) developed techniques. To clone a dinosaur one requires well-preserved tissue that contains DNA, and techniques that take this DNA and create an actual dinosaur from it. It seems that for both of these points progress is made: Soft tissue ...

In a word, No. According to this Natural History Museum fact file, Professor Jeremy Austin describes the possibility of recovering a sufficient quantity of usable DNA to recreate a dinosaur as being essentially zero. NHM: Do you think it likely that scientists will ever be able to extract enough DNA from fossilized remains to reconstruct the complete ...
