TARS robot and space shuttle models from Interstellar on display...

In Christopher Nolan's 2014 sci-fi epic Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey ventured through time and space to save humanity on a dying Earth in the future. The crew of scientists and astronauts searching for a new world to colonise were assisted by monolith-like robots, TARS and CASE, which were actually 200 pound puppets that could be moved by actors like Bill Irwin during filming. Personally I thought they were the most original idea for a robot I'd seen in many years, in their design and how they moved (made possible also with the help of special visual effects).

Fans of the movie can also check out Anne Hathaway's astronaut suit and more Interstellar props on display.
