Major Spoilers For Interstellar

No matter what, it would be nice to understand exactly what is happening once Coop begins floating around at the end of the film.

Enter Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has already had lots of interesting things to say about Christopher Nolan‘s film. In a new video, he explains how the five dimensions needed to understand the ending of Interstellar work in very plain, simple English.

Given free reign by Fox, the Family Guy creator has overseen an effects-heavy new edition of Carl Sagan’s pioneering science show.

Hit the jump to see what they had to say.
