The I Fucking Love Science Facebook page shared this image from the Scientific Illustration for the Research Scientist page.
The maths behind this image is incorrect and I just need to have a little rant about it.
According to Interstellar, 1 hour on the water planet = 7 Earth years
There are 8,760 Earth hours in 1 Earth year
So 7 years on the water planet = 613,20 water planet hours (8,760 * 7)
Assuming it takes 7 Earth years to complete a PhD, that’s 429,240 Earth years.
By the time you get back to Earth your thesis will be extremely out of date. The robots that refuted the people who refuted the original refutations of your original hypothesis would have already been refuted.
