After a light night spent skimming the Interstellar Wikipedia page, I began to wonder about some of the bigger questions of humankind: Will we live on Mars? Will we inhabit the moon? Will we just build our own giant space home away from home? Will Matthew McConaughey ever have another year like 2014?

Rather than phone Christopher Nolan, I invited The Verge's Loren Grush to tell me about space colonization. While the episode doesn't have any mind-bending twists, I promise it has more scope than even the grandest summer blockbuster.
