The code helped the team to discover that when a camera is placed close enough to a black hole, more than ten images are created by caustics. In some cases, the thin, bright plane of the galaxy in which the black hole lives is also revealed. The images, thus obtained, cluster along a particular edge of the black hole’s shadow. This phenomenon when appeared on theatre screens provided a realistic idea of what it would be like to orbit a black hole in reality.

The team of Interstellar took a new approach for creating smooth and clear images as shown in the movie. When single light rays are used for generating computer code pixels, flickering occurs and the team wanted to avoid that. Thus the special effects experts tried to alter the code in order to prov...
