- 1. Well, my dad was a farmer.
- 2. Like everybody else back then.
- 3. Of course, he didn't start that way.
- 4. Computer says you're too tight.
- 5. - Nah, I got this.
- Crossing the Straights.
- 6. - Shutting it down, Cooper.
- 7. - Shutting it all down.
- No, I need power up!
- 8. Dad?
- 9. Sorry, Murph. Go back to bed.
- 10. - I thought you were the ghost.
- 11. There are no such things
as ghosts, babe.
- 12. Grandpa says you can get ghosts.
- 13. Maybe that's because Grandpa's a little
too close to being one himself. Back to bed.
- 14. Were you dreaming about the crash?
- 15. Get your butt back in bed, Murph. Heh.
- 16. The wheat had died.
- 17. The blight came and we had to burn it.
- 18. And we still had corn.
We had acres of corn.
- 19. But... mostly we had dust.
- 20. I guess I can't describe it.
It was just constant.
- 21. Just that steady blow of dirt.
- 22. We wore... little strips of sheet...
- 23. sometimes over our nose and mouth...
- 24. so that we wouldn't breathe
so much of it.
- 25. Well, when we set the table,
we always set the plate upside-down.
- 26. Glasses or cups,
whatever it was upside-down.
- 27. Shake a leg! Murph, get a move on!
- 28. Tom, 4:00 today, you and me in the barn,
Herbicide Resistance 101.
- 29. - Check?
- Yes, sir.
- 30. Not at the table, Murph.
- 31. Dad, can you fix this?
- 32. - What the heck did you do to my lander?
- Wasn't me.
- 33. Let me guess. It was your ghost?
- 34. It knocked it off.
It keeps knocking books off.
- 35. - No such thing as ghosts, dumb-ass.
- 36. - I looked it up. It's called a poltergeist.
- Dad, tell her.
- 37. Well, it's not very scientific, Murph.
- 38. You said science was about admitting
what we don't know.
- 39. - She's got you there.
- Hey. Start looking after our stuff.
- 40. Coop.
- 41. All right, Murph,
you want to talk science?
- 42. Don't tell me you're afraid of some ghost.
No, you got to go further.
- 43. You got to record the facts, analyze,
get to the how and the why...
- 44. then present your conclusions. Deal?
- 45. - Deal.
- All right.
- 46. - Have a good day at school.
- Hold up.
- 47. Parent-teacher conferences. Parent.
- 48. Slow down, turbo!
- 49. - That's not a dust storm.
- Nelson's torching his whole crop.
- 50. Blight?
- 51. They're saying
it's the last harvest for okra.
- 52. Ever.
- 53. He should've planted corn
like the rest of us.
- 54. Now, be nice to that Miss Hanley.
- 55. What's that supposed to mean?
- 56. Repopulating the earth.
Start pulling your weight, young man.
- 57. Why don't you start
minding your own business, old man?
- 58. All right, Murph, give me second.
- 59. Third.
- 60. - Find a gear, dumb-ass.
- Grind it!
- 61. Shut it, Tom!
- 62. - What'd you do, Murph?
- She didn't do nothing.
- 63. - Blew a tire is all.
- Murphy's Law.
- 64. Shut up!
- 65. - Grab the spare, Tom.
- That is the spare.
- 66. Get the patch kit!
- 67. - How am I supposed to patch it out here?
- You got to figure it out.
- 68. I'm not always gonna be here
to help you.
- 69. What's going on, Murph?
- 70. Why did you and Mom name me
after something that's bad?
- 71. - We didn't.
- Murphy's Law?
- 72. Murphy's Law doesn't mean
that something bad will happen.
- 73. What it means is
whatever can happen will happen.
- 74. And that sounded just fine with us.
- 75. Whoa!
- 76. Get in.
- 77. Get in, let's go.
- 78. What about the flat tire?
- 79. Yeah.
- 80. It's an Indian Air Force drone.
Solar cells could power an entire farm.
- 81. Take the wheel, Tom.
- 82. Go, go, go!
- 83. Keep that aimed right at it.
- 84. Faster, Tom. I'm losing it.
- 85. Right at it.
- 86. Stay on it.
- 87. Here we go.
- 88. Whoa.
- 89. Nice one, Tom.
- 90. Dad?
- 91. I almost got it. Don't stop. Don't stop!
- 92. - Dad!
- 93. You told me to keep driving.
- 94. Well, I guess that answers the old "If
I asked you to drive off a cliff" scenario.
- 95. - We lost it.
- No, we didn't.
- 96. Want to give it a whirl?
- 97. This way.
- 98. Go.
- 99. Let's lay her down right there
at the edge of the reservoir.
- 100. Nicely done.
- 101. How long you think it's been up there?
- 102. Delhi Mission Control
went down, same as ours...
- 103. - ... ten years ago.
- 104. So for ten years?
- 105. - Why did it come down so low?
- I don't know.
- 106. Maybe the sun cooked its brain
or it was looking for something.
- 107. - What?
- Give me a large flatblade.
- 108. Maybe some kind of signal? I don't know.
- 109. What are you gonna do with it?
- 110. I'm gonna give it something
socially responsible to do...
- 111. like drive a combine.
- 112. Can't we just let it go?
- 113. It wasn't hurting anybody.
- 114. This thing needs to learn how to adapt,
Murph... like the rest of us.
- 115. How's this work? You guys come with?
- 116. I've got class. This one needs to wait.
- 117. - What did you do?
- They'll tell you about it in there.
- 118. - Am I gonna be mad?
- Not with me.
- 119. - Just please try not to.
- Hey. Relax.
- 120. I got this.
- 121. - Little late, Coop.
- Yeah, we had a flat.
- 122. And I guess you had to stop off
at the Asian fighter plane store.
- 123. No, actually, sir,
that's a surveillance drone.
- 124. With outstanding solar cells.
- 125. Take a seat.
- 126. So...
- 127. we got Tom's scores back.
- 128. He's going to make an excellent farmer.
- 129. Yeah, he's got a knack for it.
What about college?
- 130. The university only takes a handful.
They don't have the resources to...
- 131. I still pay my taxes.
- 132. Where's that money go?
There's no more armies.
- 133. Well, it doesn't go to the university.
- 134. - Look, Coop, you have to be realistic.
- You're ruling my son out for college now?
- 135. - The kid's 15.
- Tom's score simply isn't high enough.
- 136. What's your waistline? About what, 32?
- 137. - About a 33 inseam?
- I'm not sure I see what you're getting at.
- 138. It takes two numbers to measure your ass
but only one to measure my son's future?
- 139. Come on.
You're a well-educated man, Coop.
- 140. - And a trained pilot.
- And an engineer.
- 141. Okay, well, right now
we don't need more engineers.
- 142. We didn't run out of television screens
and planes. We ran out of food.
- 143. The world needs farmers.
Good farmers, like you.
- 144. - And Tom.
- Uneducated farmers.
- 145. We're a caretaker generation, Coop.
And things are getting better.
- 146. Maybe your grandkids
will get to be engin...
- 147. Are we done here, sir?
- 148. No.
- 149. Miss Hanley's here to talk about Murph.
- 150. Murph is a great kid.
She's really bright.
- 151. But she's been having
a little trouble lately.
- 152. She brought this in to show the students.
The section on the lunar landings.
- 153. Yeah, it's one of my old textbooks.
She always loved the pictures.
- 154. It's an old federal textbook. We've
replaced them with the corrected versions.
- 155. Corrected?
- 156. Explaining how the Apollo missions
were faked to bankrupt the Soviet Union.
- 157. You don't believe we went to the moon?
- 158. It was a brilliant piece of propaganda.
- 159. The Soviets bankrupted themselves
- 160. - into rockets and other useless machines.
- "Useless machines."
- 161. If we don't want a repeat of the excess and
wastefulness of the 20th century, then...
- 162. we need to teach our kids about this planet,
not tales of leaving it.
- 163. One of those useless machines
they used to make was called an MRI.
- 164. If we had any of those left,
the doctors would've been able to find...
- 165. the cyst in my wife's brain
before she died instead of afterwards.
- 166. Then she'd have been the one
listening to this instead of me...
- 167. which would have been a good thing,
because she was always...
- 168. the calmer one.
- 169. I'm sorry about your wife, Mr. Cooper.
- 170. But Murph got into a fistfight
with several of her classmates over this...
- 171. Apollo nonsense. So we thought it best
to bring you in and see what ideas...
- 172. you might have for dealing
with her behavior on the home front.
- 173. Yeah, you know what?
There's a game tomorrow night.
- 174. She's going through
a bit of a baseball phase.
- 175. Her favorite team is playing.
There's gonna be candy and soda and...
- 176. I think I'll take her to that.
- 177. How'd it go?
- 178. I got you suspended.
- 179. - What?
- 180. This is Cooper. Go.
- 181. Coop, those combines you rebuilt
- 182. Just reset the controllers.
- 183. I did that.
Now you should come take a look.
- 184. One by one they've been peeling off
the fields and heading over.
- 185. Something's interfering
with the compass.
- 186. Magnetism or some such.
- 187. Nothing special about which book.
I've been working on it, like you said.
- 188. - I counted the spaces.
- 189. In case the ghost
is trying to communicate.
- 190. I'm trying Morse.
- 191. Morse?
- 192. Yeah.
- 193. - Dots and dashes, used...
- I know what Morse code is, Murph.
- 194. I just don't think your bookshelf's
trying to talk to you.
- 195. Had to reset every compass clock and GPS
to offset for the anomaly.
- 196. - Which is?
- I don't know.
- 197. If the house was built
on magnetic ore...
- 198. we'd have seen this the first time
we switched on the tractor.
- 199. I hear your meeting at the school
didn't go so well.
- 200. Heh. You heard?
- 201. It's like we've forgotten
who we are, Donald.
- 202. Explorers, pioneers, not caretakers.
- 203. When I was a kid...
- 204. it felt like they made something new
every day. Some...
- 205. gadget or idea.
Like every day was Christmas.
- 206. But six billion people...
just try to imagine that.
- 207. And every last one of them
trying to have it all.
- 208. This world isn't so bad.
- 209. And Tom will do just fine.
You're the one who doesn't belong.
- 210. Born 40 years too late,
or 40 years too early.
- 211. My daughter knew it, God bless her.
- 212. And your kids know it. Especially Murph.
- 213. Well, we used to look up in the sky
- 214. at our place in the stars.
- 215. Now we just look down and worry
about our place in the dirt.
- 216. Cooper, you were good at something...
- 217. and you never got a chance
to do anything with it.
- 218. I'm sorry.
- 219. You didn't expect this dirt
that was giving you this food...
- 220. to turn on you like that
and destroy you.
- 221. In April... I believe I'm right...
Fifteenth of April, I think.
- 222. This happened about 1:30 when that thing...
came off the top of that canyon.
- 223. In my day, we had real ballplayers.
Who are these bums?
- 224. In my day, people were too busy
fighting over food to even play baseball.
- 225. Popcorn at a ballgame is unnatural.
I want a hot dog.
- 226. School says you're gonna follow
in my footsteps.
- 227. I think that's great.
- 228. - You think that's great?
- You hate farming, Dad.
- 229. Grandpa said.
- 230. Grandpa said?
- 231. Listen, all that matters
is how you feel about it.
- 232. I like what you do.
- 233. I like our farm.
- 234. You're gonna be great at it.
- 235. Let's get out of here.
- 236. All right, it's a doozy.
- 237. All right, gang, let's mask up.
- 238. - Tom? Murph? Check?
- 239. Murph, Tom, you guys shut your windows?
- 240. Murph?
- 241. The ghost.
- 242. Grab your pillow.
- 243. You're sleeping in with Tom.
- 244. It's not a ghost.
- 245. It's gravity.
- 246. I'm dropping Tom, then heading to town.
- 247. You want to clean that up
when you've finished praying to it?
- 248. It's not Morse, Murph. It's binary.
- 249. Thick is one, thin is zero.
- 250. Coordinates.
- 251. Nope.
- 252. Here we go.
- 253. Thirty-three.
- 254. That's it.
- 255. I can't miss this!
- 256. Grandpa will be back
in a couple hours, Murph.
- 257. But you don't know
what you're gonna find.
- 258. And that...
- 259. is why I can't take you.
- 260. Murph?
- 261. Grandpa will be home in a while.
Tell him I'll call him on the radio.
- 262. Jesus.
- 263. - What are you doing?
- 264. Oh, you think this is funny?
- 265. You wouldn't be here
if it wasn't for me.
- 266. Make yourself useful.
- 267. Hey, Murph?
- 268. Murph.
- 269. I think this is the end of the road.
- 270. Didn't you bring the bolt cutters?
- 271. That's my girl.
- 272. Step away!
- 273. Don't shoot! I'm not armed.
My daughter's in the car.
- 274. Don't be afraid.
- 275. How did you find this place?
- 276. Where's my daughter?
- 277. You had the coordinates for this facility
marked on your map. Where did you get them?
- 278. Where's my daughter?
- 279. Don't make me take you down again.
- 280. Oh, you still think
you're a Marine, pal?
- 281. Marines don't exist anymore.
- 282. - And I got grunts like you mowing my grass.
- Where did you find those coordinates?
- 283. But you don't look much
like a lawnmower.
- 284. Think I'll turn you
into an overqualified vacuum cleaner.
- 285. No, you won't.
- 286. TARS, back down, please.
- 287. You know, you're taking a risk
using ex-military security.
- 288. They're old, and their control units
- 289. It's what the government could spare.
- 290. Who are you?
- 291. Dr. Brand.
- 292. I knew a Dr. Brand once.
He was a professor.
- 293. What makes you think I'm not?
- 294. Wasn't near as cute, either.
- 295. Please, Dr. Brand.
I don't have any idea what this is.
- 296. Now I'm scared for my daughter
and want her by my side.
- 297. You give me that,
I'll tell you anything you want to know.
- 298. Get the principals and the girl
in the conference room, please.
- 299. Your daughter is fine. Bright kid.
- 300. Must have a very smart mother.
- 301. It's pretty clear
you don't want any visitors.
- 302. So why don't you just let us back up from
your fence and we'll be on our way?
- 303. - It's not that simple.
- Well, sure, it is.
- 304. I don't know anything about you.
I don't know anything about this place.
- 305. Yes, you do.
- 306. Dad!
- 307. Hello, Cooper.
- 308. Professor Brand.
- 309. Explain to me
how you found this facility.
- 310. Kind of an accident. We sort of stumbled
upon it. We were on a salvage run...
- 311. You're sitting in the best-kept secret
in the world.
- 312. Nobody stumbles in here.
Nobody stumbles out.
- 313. Cooper, please.
Cooperate with these people.
- 314. Look.
- 315. It's kind of hard to explain.
- 316. We learned these coordinates
from an anomaly.
- 317. What sort of anomaly?
- 318. I hesitate to term it supernatural,
but it definitely wasn't scientific.
- 319. You're going to have to be specific,
Mr. Cooper. Right now.
- 320. It was gravity.
- 321. What sort of gravitational anomaly?
Where was this?
- 322. Now, I'm real happy that you're excited
about gravity, bud...
- 323. but you're not getting any answers
from us until I get assurances.
- 324. - Assurances?
- 325. Like, that we're getting out of here.
And I don't mean in the trunk of some car.
- 326. - Don't you know who we are, Coop?
- No, professor, I don't.
- 327. You know my father, Professor Brand.
- 328. We're NASA.
- 329. - NASA?
- 330. The same NASA you flew for.
- 331. I heard they shut you down, sir...
- 332. for refusing to drop bombs
from the stratosphere onto starving people.
- 333. When they realized
that killing other people was...
- 334. not a long-term solution,
then they needed us back.
- 335. - In secret.
- Why secret?
- 336. Because public opinion wouldn't allow
spending on space exploration.
- 337. Not while you're struggling
to put food on the table.
- 338. Blight.
- 339. Wheat seven years ago. Okra this year.
- 340. Now there's just corn.
- 341. And we're growing more
than we ever have.
- 342. But like the potatoes in Ireland
and the wheat in the Dust Bowl...
- 343. the corn will die.
- 344. Soon.
- 345. We'll find a way, professor.
We always have.
- 346. Driven by the unshakable faith
the Earth is ours.
- 347. Not just ours, no. But it is our home.
- 348. Earth's atmosphere is 80 percent nitrogen.
We don't even breathe nitrogen.
- 349. Blight does. And as it thrives,
our air gets less and less oxygen.
- 350. The last people to starve
will be the first to suffocate.
- 351. And your daughter's generation...
- 352. will be the last to survive on Earth.
- 353. Murph is feeling tired. I was wondering
if she could take a nap in my office.
- 354. Yeah. Thank you.
- 355. Alright...
- 356. now you need to tell me
what your plan is to save the world.
- 357. We're not meant to save the world.
We're meant to leave it.
- 358. Rangers.
- 359. The last components of our one versatile
ship in orbit, the Endurance.
- 360. Our final expedition.
- 361. You sent people out there
looking for a new home?
- 362. The Lazarus missions.
- 363. - Oh, that sounds cheerful.
- Lazarus came back from the dead.
- 364. Sure, but he had to die
in the first place.
- 365. There's not a planet in our solar system
that could sustain life...
- 366. and the nearest star's
over a thousand years away.
- 367. That doesn't even qualify as futile.
- 368. Where'd you send them?
- 369. Cooper...
- 370. I can't tell you anymore
unless you agree to pilot this craft.
- 371. - You're the best pilot we ever had.
- I barely left the stratosphere.
- 372. This team never left the simulator.
- 373. We need a pilot, and this is the mission
that you were trained for.
- 374. Without even knowing it?
- 375. An hour ago, you didn't even know
I was alive. You were going anyway.
- 376. We had no choice.
But something sent you here.
- 377. - They chose you.
- Who's "they"?
- 378. How long would I be gone?
- 379. Hard to know. Years?
- 380. - I've got kids, professor.
- Get out there and save them.
- 381. Who's "they"?
- 382. We started detecting gravitational
anomalies almost 50 years ago.
- 383. Mostly small distortions to our instruments
in the upper atmosphere.
- 384. In fact, I believe
you encountered one yourself.
- 385. Yeah, over the Straights.
- 386. My crash.
Something tripped my fly-by-wire.
- 387. Exactly.
- 388. But of all these anomalies,
the most significant is this:
- 389. Out near Saturn...
- 390. a disturbance of space-time.
- 391. - Is that a Wormhole?
- It appeared 48 years ago.
- 392. - And it leads where?
- Another galaxy.
- 393. A wormhole's not
a naturally occurring phenomenon.
- 394. Someone placed it there.
- 395. "They"?
- 396. And whoever they are,
they appear to be looking out for us.
- 397. That Wormhole lets us travel to other stars.
It came along right as we needed it.
- 398. They've put potentially habitable worlds
right within our reach.
- 399. Twelve, in fact,
from our initial probes.
- 400. You sent probes into that?
- 401. We sent people into it. Ten years ago.
- 402. The Lazarus missions.
- 403. Twelve possible worlds,
twelve Ranger launches carrying...
- 404. the bravest humans ever to live...
led by the remarkable Dr. Mann.
- 405. Each person's landing pod
had enough life support for two years.
- 406. But they could use hibernation
to stretch that...
- 407. making observations on organics
over a decade or more.
- 408. Their mission was to assess their world,
and if it showed potential...
- 409. then they could send out a signal,
bed down for the long nap,
- 410. wait to be rescued.
- 411. And what if the world
didn't show promise?
- 412. Hence the bravery.
- 413. You don't have the resources
to visit all 12.
- 414. No.
- 415. Data transmission back through
the Wormhole is rudimentary.
- 416. Simple binary pings on an annual basis give us
some clue as to which worlds have potential.
- 417. And one system shows promise.
- 418. One. That's a bit
of a long shot, isn't it?
- 419. One system with three potential worlds?
- 420. No long shot.
- 421. Okay.
- 422. So if we find a home...
- 423. - ... then what?
- That's the long shot.
- 424. There's a Plan A and a Plan B.
- 425. Did you notice anything strange
about the launch chamber?
- 426. This entire facility's a centrifuge.
- 427. Some kind of vehicle. A space station?
- 428. - Both. Plan A.
- How do you get it off the ground?
- 429. The first gravitational anomalies
- 430. Suddenly we knew
that harnessing gravity was real.
- 431. So I started working on a theory
and we started building this station.
- 432. But you haven't solved it yet.
- 433. That's why there's Plan B.
- 434. The problem is gravity.
- 435. How to get a viable amount of
human life off the planet.
- 436. This is one way.
- 437. Plan B: A population bomb.
- 438. Over 5,000 fertilized eggs
weighing in at just under 900 kilos.
- 439. How would you raise them?
- 440. With equipment on board,
we incubate the first 10.
- 441. After that, with surrogacy,
the growth becomes exponential.
- 442. Within 30 years,
we could have a colony of hundreds.
- 443. The real difficulty with colonization
is genetic diversity.
- 444. This takes care of that.
- 445. But what about the people here?
- 446. You give up on them? My kids?
- 447. That's why Plan A is a lot more fun.
- 448. - How far have you got?
- Almost there.
- 449. You're asking me to hang everything...
- 450. on an almost.
- 451. I'm asking you to trust me.
- 452. Find us a new home.
- 453. And by the time you return...
- 454. I will have solved
the problem of gravity.
- 455. I give you my word.
- 456. Go away!
- 457. Murph.
- 458. Go! If you're leaving, just go.
- 459. This world was never enough
for you, was it, Coop?
- 460. What, because heading out there
is what I feel like I was born to do?
- 461. And it excites me? Heh.
- 462. No, that does not make it wrong.
- 463. It might. Don't trust the right thing
done for the wrong reason.
- 464. The why of the thing,
that's the foundation.
- 465. And the foundation's solid.
- 466. We farmers, we sit here every year
when the rains fail and we say:
- 467. "Next year."
- 468. Well, next year ain't gonna save us,
nor the one after that.
- 469. This world's a treasure, Donald,
- 470. but it's been telling us
to leave for a while now.
- 471. Mankind was born on Earth,
it was never meant to die here.
- 472. Tom will be all right, but you got
to make things right with Murph.
- 473. I will.
- 474. Without making promises
you don't know you can keep.
- 475. You have to talk to me, Murph.
- 476. I need to fix this before I go.
- 477. Then I'll keep it broken
so you have to stay.
- 478. After you kids came along, your mom said
something to me I never quite understood.
- 479. She said, "Now...
- 480. we're just here
to be memories for our kids."
- 481. And I think that now I understand
what she meant.
- 482. Once you're a parent,
you're the ghost of your children's future.
- 483. You said ghosts didn't exist.
- 484. That's right, Murph.
- 485. Murph, look at me.
- 486. I can't be your ghost right now.
- 487. I need to exist.
- 488. They chose me.
- 489. Murph, they chose me. You saw.
You're the one who led me to them.
- 490. That's exactly why you can't go.
- 491. I figured out the message.
- 492. - One word. Know what it is?
- 493. "Stay."
- 494. - It says, "Stay," Dad.
- 495. You don't believe me.
- 496. Look at the books! Look at this.
It says, "Stay."
- 497. Why...? You're not listening!
It says, "Stay!"
- 498. - No, I'm coming back.
- 499. One for you, one for me.
- 500. When I'm up there in hypersleep, or...
- 501. traveling near the speed of light, or...
- 502. near a black hole...
- 503. time's gonna change for me.
It's gonna run more slowly.
- 504. When we get back...
- 505. we're gonna compare.
- 506. - Time will run differently for us?
- 507. By the time I get back,
we might even be the same age, you and me.
- 508. "What?" Imagine that!
- 509. Aw, Murph...
- 510. You have no idea when you're coming back.
- 511. No idea at all!
- 512. Murph, don't...
Don't make me leave like this.
- 513. Come on, Murph!
- 514. Don't make me leave like this, Murph!
- 515. Hey...
- 516. I love you. Forever. You hear me?
- 517. I love you forever, and I'm coming back.
- 518. I'm coming back.
- 519. - How'd it go?
- 520. Just fine.
- 521. I love you, Tom.
- 522. - Travel safe?
- 523. You look after our place
for me, all right?
- 524. All right?
- 525. Hey, can I use your truck
while you're gone?
- 526. You mean your truck?
- 527. I'll make sure they bring it back.
- 528. Look after my kids, Donald!
- 529. Go for main engine start. T-minus 10...
- 530. - Dad!
- ... nine...
- 531. Dad!
- 532. eight...
- 533. - seven...
- 534. six...
- 535. five, main engine start, four...
- 536. three...
- 537. two...
- 538. one. Booster ignition and...
- 539. All engines look good.
Beginning roll program.
- 540. Prepare for stage one separation.
- 541. Stage one.
- 542. There is Mach 1.
- 543. Everybody good?
Plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
- 544. They gave him a humor setting
so he'd fit in better with his unit.
- 545. He thinks it relaxes us.
- 546. A giant sarcastic robot.
- 547. What a great idea!
- 548. I have a cue light I can use
when I'm joking if you like.
- 549. That'd probably help.
- 550. You can use it to find your way back to
the ship after I blow you out the airlock.
- 551. - What's your humor setting, TARS?
- That's 100 percent.
- 552. Let's bring it on down to 75, please.
- 553. Stage two separation.
- 554. All feeds going manual.
- 555. Going manual.
- 556. Deactivate probe heater one,
two and three.
- 557. Check.
- 558. - Taking control.
- This is handover to you.
- 559. - A.D.F. check.
- 560. Pull thrusters back.
Fuel cells one, two, three.
- 561. - One hundred percent.
- 562. It's hard leaving everything.
My kids. Your father.
- 563. We're going to be spending
a lot of time together.
- 564. - We should learn to talk.
- And when not to.
- 565. Just being honest.
- 566. I don't think you need to be that honest.
- 567. Hey, TARS, what's your honesty parameter?
- 568. - Ninety percent.
- Ninety percent?
- 569. Absolute honesty isn't always
the most diplomatic,
- 570. nor the safest form of communication
with emotional beings.
- 571. Okay.
- 572. Ninety percent it is, Dr. Brand.
- 573. We are coming up on the Endurance.
Twelve minutes out.
- 574. Okay. Taking control.
- 575. Approaching module port, 500 meters.
- 576. It's all you, Doyle.
- 577. Nice and easy, Doyle. Nice and easy.
- 578. - I feel good.
- Take us home.
- 579. - Lock.
- Target locked.
- 580. - Well done.
- Okay, helmets on.
- 581. Good job.
- 582. Door's not charging. Never mind.
- 583. Cooper, you should have control.
- 584. Control here.
- 585. Communication with ring module active.
- 586. Oh, wow.
- 587. That's initiate.
- 588. - Are we ready to spin?
- Just a sec.
- 589. - Hello, CASE.
- Hello, TARS.
- 590. All right, we're all set.
- 591. All right, let's do it.
- 592. Heh.
- 593. Thirty percent of spin.
- 594. One G.
- 595. How's gravity treating you back there?
- 596. Well.
- 597. Romilly? Hey, you okay?
- 598. - Yeah.
- You all right?
- 599. Yeah, I just need a minute.
- 600. I think we have some Dramamine
in the hab pod, I'm just gonna get that
- 601. or maybe in the cryo-beds.
I'll just be a sec.
- 602. - Hey, Brand?
- 603. - Bring a lot.
- 604. Amelia, be safe.
- 605. - Give my regards to Dr. Mann.
- I will, Dad.
- 606. It looks good for your trajectory.
We've calculated two years to Saturn.
- 607. That's a lot of Dramamine.
- 608. Look after my family,
will you, please, sir?
- 609. We'll be waiting for you
when you get back.
- 610. A little older, a little wiser,
but happy to see you.
- 611. Do not go gentle into that good night
- 612. Old age should burn
and rave at close of day
- 613. Rage, rage against
the dying of the light
- 614. Though wise men at their end
Know dark is right
- 615. Because their words had forked
No lightning they
- 616. Do not go gentle into that good night
- 617. Rage, rage against
the dying of the light
- 618. - You good?
- 619. Okay, thank you, sir.
- 620. Here. Pills.
- 621. So alone.
- 622. We have each other.
Dr. Mann had it worse.
- 623. No, I mean them.
- 624. It's a perfect planet,
and we won't find another one like her.
- 625. No, it's not like looking
for a new condo.
- 626. The human race is going to be...
- 627. adrift...
- 628. desperate for a rock it can cling to
while it catches its breath.
- 629. We need to find that rock.
- 630. And our three prospects are at the edge
of what might sustain human life.
- 631. Laura Miller's planet is first.
- 632. - Laura started our biology program.
- 633. - Wolf Edmunds is here.
- Tell me about Edmunds.
- 634. Oh... Wolf's a particle physicist.
- 635. None of them had families?
- 636. No. No attachments. My father insisted.
- 637. They all knew the odds against
ever seeing another human being again.
- 638. I'm hoping we can surprise
at least three of them.
- 639. - How about Mann?
- Dr. Mann?
- 640. He's remarkable. He's the best of us.
- 641. He inspired 11 people to follow him
on the loneliest journey in human history.
- 642. Scientists, explorers.
- 643. That's what I love.
You know, out there we face great odds.
- 644. Death, but...
- 645. not evil.
- 646. You don't think nature can be evil?
- 647. No. Formidable. Frightening. But...
- 648. no, not evil.
- 649. Is a lion evil
because it rips a gazelle to shreds?
- 650. Just what we take with us, then.
- 651. Yeah.
- 652. This crew represents
the best of humanity.
- 653. Even me?
- 654. You know what? We agreed, 90 percent.
- 655. There you go.
- 656. - Don't stay up.
- I'll be there in a minute.
- 657. Just remember, Coop,
you are literally wasting your breath.
- 658. Hey, TARS? Let's go over
that trajectory one more time.
- 659. Eight months to Mars.
- 660. Counter-orbital slingshot around.
Fourteen months to Saturn.
- 661. Nothing's changed on that.
- 662. Just let me ask you something.
- 663. Dr. Brand and Edmunds...
- 664. Why are you whispering?
They can't hear you.
- 665. Dr. Brand and Edmunds. They close?
- 666. I wouldn't know.
- 667. Is that 90 percent "wouldn't know"
or 10 percent "wouldn't know"?
- 668. I also have a discretion setting, Cooper.
- 669. But not a poker face, Slick.
- 670. Hey, guys.
- 671. Dad's about to go down for the long nap.
- 672. So I wanted to give you an update.
- 673. The Earth looks amazing from here.
- 674. You can't see any of the dust. Heh.
- 675. I really hope you guys are doing great.
- 676. I know you're gonna get this message.
Professor Brand's assured me that...
- 677. he's gonna get it to you.
- 678. Know that I love you.
- 679. - Is it him?
- I don't think so, Murph.
- 680. You must be Donald.
- 681. Hello, Murph.
- 682. Why are you in my dad's truck?
- 683. He wanted me
to bring it for your brother.
- 684. He sent you a message.
- 685. She's pretty upset with him for leaving.
- 686. If you record any messages,
I can get them to transmit it to Cooper.
- 687. Murph is a bright spark.
- 688. Maybe I should fan the flame.
- 689. She's already making fools
of her teachers.
- 690. So maybe she should come
and make a fool out of you.
- 691. - So where are they?
- Heading for Mars.
- 692. The next time you hear from Cooper,
they'll be coming up on Saturn.
- 693. administration wants me to repeat
Plant Pathology. Which sucks.
- 694. But they said I could start
Advanced Agriculture a year early.
- 695. All right, I got to go, Dad.
Hope you're safe up there.
- 696. Sorry, Coop.
- 697. I asked Murph to say hi,
but she's as stubborn as her old man.
- 698. I'll try again next time.
- 699. You all right, Rom?
- 700. This gets to me, Cooper. This. This.
- 701. Millimeters of aluminum, that's it,
and then nothing...
- 702. out there for millions of miles
won't kill us in seconds.
- 703. You know that some of the finest...
- 704. solo yachtsmen in the world
don't know how to swim?
- 705. They don't know how.
- 706. And if they go overboard,
psst, they're done.
- 707. We're explorers, Rom.
- 708. This is our boat. Here.
- 709. This is from the... relay probe?
- 710. It was in orbit around the Wormhole.
- 711. This is the Wormhole,
and every time we'd come around...
- 712. we would receive images
from the other side of the foreign galaxy.
- 713. Oh, yeah.
Like swinging a periscope around.
- 714. Exactly.
- 715. So we got a pretty good idea
what we're gonna find on the other side?
- 716. Navigationally.
- 717. Guys? Looks like we'll be approaching
the Wormhole in about three hours.
- 718. Hey, Coop?
- 719. - Can we stop the spinning?
- 720. Because we're close enough
to see it now?
- 721. All right.
- 722. Thanks.
- 723. There, that's it! That's the Wormhole!
- 724. Say it, don't spray it, Rom. It's a sphere.
- 725. Of course it is. What, you...?
You thought it would just be a hole?
- 726. No, it's just that all the illustrations
I've ever seen, they...
- 727. In the illustrations,
they're trying to show you how it works.
- 728. So they say you want to go
from here to there.
- 729. But it's too far, right?
- 730. So a Wormhole bends space like this,
so you can take a shortcut through...
- 731. a higher dimension.
- 732. Okay, so...
- 733. to show that,
they've turned three-dimensional space
- 734. into two dimensions which turns a Wormhole
into two dimensions, a circle.
- 735. What's a circle in three dimensions?
- 736. - A sphere.
- 737. A spherical hole.
- 738. But who put it there?
Who do we have to thank?
- 739. I'm not thanking anybody until we
get out of here in one piece, Rom.
- 740. Any trick to this, Doyle?
- 741. No one knows.
- 742. The others made it, right?
- 743. At least some of them.
- 744. Everybody ready to say goodbye
to our solar system?
- 745. To our galaxy.
- 746. Here we go.
- 747. The controls won't work here.
We're passing through the bulk.
- 748. It's space beyond our three dimensions.
All you can do is record and observe.
- 749. What is that?
- 750. - I think it's them.
- Distorting space-time.
- 751. Don't! Don't!
- 752. What was that?
- 753. The first handshake.
- 754. We're...
- 755. We're here.
- 756. So the lost communications came through.
- 757. - How?
- The relay on this side cached them.
- 758. So years of basic data.
No real surprises.
- 759. Miller's site has kept pinging thumbs up,
as has Dr. Mann's.
- 760. Edmunds' went down three years ago.
- 761. Transmitter failure?
- 762. Maybe. He was sending the thumbs up
right until it went dark.
- 763. But Miller's still
looks good though, right?
- 764. - Because she's coming up fast.
- 765. With one complication.
- 766. The planet is much closer to Gargantua
than we thought.
- 767. - Gargantua?
- It's what we're calling the black hole.
- 768. Miller's and Dr. Mann's planets
both orbit it.
- 769. - And Miller's is on the horizon?
- As a basketball around a hoop.
- 770. Landing there takes us
- 771. And a black hole that big
has a huge gravitational pull.
- 772. Look, I could swing around
that neutron star to decelerate.
- 773. No, it's not that. It's time.
- 774. The gravity on that planet will slow
our clock compared to Earth's drastically.
- 775. How bad?
- 776. Every hour we spend
on that planet will be...
- 777. seven years back on Earth.
- 778. Jesus.
- 779. Well, that's relativity, folks.
- 780. Well, we can't just drop down
- 781. Cooper, we have a mission.
- 782. Yeah, Doyle, we have a mission,
and our mission Plan A is...
- 783. to find a planet that can habitate the
people that are living on Earth right now.
- 784. You can't just think about your family.
Now you have to think bigger than that.
- 785. I am thinking about my family
and millions of other families, okay?
- 786. Plan A does not work if the people on Earth
are dead by the time we pull it off.
- 787. No. It doesn't.
That's why there's a Plan B.
- 788. Okay. Cooper's right.
We need to think of time as a resource,
- 789. just like oxygen and food.
Going down it's gonna cost us.
- 790. All right, look.
- 791. Dr. Mann's data is promising,
but it's gonna take months to get there.
- 792. And Edmunds', it's even further.
- 793. Miller hasn't sent much,
but what she has is very promising.
- 794. It's water, it's organics...
- 795. - You don't find that every day.
- No, you don't.
- 796. And just think about the resources,
- 797. that would be spent
trying to get back here.
- 798. - Romilly...
- 799. how far off from Miller's planet do we
have to be to stay out of the time shift?
- 800. Just back from the cusp.
- 801. All right, which is here,
just outside of Miller's planet.
- 802. - Right.
- 803. Here's Gargantua.
Here's Miller's planet.
- 804. Instead of taking the Endurance
into orbit around Miller's planet...
- 805. which would conserve fuel,
but we would lose a lot of time...
- 806. what if we take a wider orbit
- 807. parallel with Miller's planet
outside of this time shift, to here?
- 808. Then we take the Ranger down,
we get Miller, we get her samples.
- 809. We come back, we analyze, we debrief.
We're in, we're out.
- 810. We lose a little fuel,
but we save a whole lot of time.
- 811. - That'll work.
- That's good.
- 812. There's no time for monkey business
or chit-chat down there.
- 813. So, TARS,
you should definitely stay here.
- 814. CASE, you're with me.
Anyone else can stay.
- 815. If we're talking about a couple years,
I could use the time to research gravity.
- 816. Observations from the Wormhole,
that's gold to Professor Brand.
- 817. TARS, factor an orbit of Gargantua.
- 818. Conserve fuel, minimize thrusting,
- 819. but make sure we stay in
range of Miller's planet.
- 820. - You got it?
- I wouldn't leave you behind...
- 821. Dr. Brand.
- 822. - You ready, CASE?
- 823. - You don't say much, do you?
- TARS talks plenty for both of us.
- 824. Detach.
- 825. - Romilly, are you reading these forces?
- It's unbelievable.
- 826. A literal heart of darkness.
- 827. If we could just see
the collapsed star inside...
- 828. the singularity, yeah,
we'd solve gravity.
- 829. - And we can't get anything from it?
- Nothing escapes that horizon.
- 830. Not even light.
- 831. - The answer's there, just no way to see it.
- There's Miller's planet.
- 832. Goodbye, Ranger.
- 833. This is fast for atmospheric entry.
- 834. - Should we use the thrusters to slow?
- 835. I'm gonna use the Ranger's aerodynamics
to save some fuel.
- 836. Air brake?
- 837. - We want to get down fast, don't we?
- We want to get there in one piece.
- 838. - Hang on.
- Brand, Doyle, get ready.
- 839. - We should ease!
- Hands where I can see them.
- 840. The only time I went down was
when a machine was easing at the wrong time.
- 841. - A little caution...
- Can get you killed, like reckless driving.
- 842. - Cooper, it's too damn fast!
- I got this.
- 843. - Should I disable the feedback?
- No. I need to feel the air.
- 844. Here we go.
- 845. It's just water!
- 846. The stuff of life.
- 847. Twelve hundred meters.
- 848. - Do we have a fix on the beacon?
- Got it!
- 849. - Can you maneuver?
- I'll need to shave some speed.
- 850. I'm gonna spiral down on top of it.
Everybody hang on!
- 851. Seven hundred.
- 852. On my cue, CASE. On my cue.
- 853. Five hundred meters.
- 854. Fire!
- 855. - Very graceful.
- 856. But very efficient.
- 857. What are you waiting for? Let's go!
- 858. Go, go, go!
- 859. Seven years per hour here.
Let's make it count!
- 860. This way.
- 861. About 200 meters.
- 862. The gravity's punishing.
- 863. Been floating through space too long?
- 864. 110% Earth gravity.
- 865. Come on. Come on.
- 866. - There's nothing here.
- Should be right here.
- 867. If the signal's
coming from here, then...
- 868. Her beacon.
- 869. Wreckage.
- 870. Where's the rest?
- 871. Towards the mountains!
- 872. Those aren't mountains.
- 873. They're waves.
- 874. Oh, shit. Oh, shit. Oh, shit.
- 875. That one's moving away from us.
- 876. We need the recorder.
- 877. Brand, Doyle, back to the Ranger now!
- 878. We're not leaving without her data.
- 879. Get back here now! We do not have time!
- 880. The second wave is coming!
We're in the middle of a swell.
- 881. No, I got it.
- 882. Get your ass back to the Ranger now!
- 883. Brand, get back here now!
- 884. No, Cooper, go.
Cooper, go. I can't make it.
- 885. - Go!
- CASE, go get her.
- 886. - Go!
- Get up. Get up, Brand!
- 887. Go, go! Go!
- 888. - I'm not gonna make it!
- Yes, you are. Yes, you are!
- 889. Come on, CASE has her!
Get back here, Doyle!
- 890. Come on!
- 891. Get to the hatch!
- 892. Go, go! Go!
- 893. Shit.
- 894. Manually overriding inside hatch!
- 895. Cooper! Wait!
- 896. The engines are flooded!
I'm gonna have to shut her down.
- 897. Holy shit.
- 898. Hang on!
- 899. - CASE, what's the problem?
- Too waterlogged. Let it drain.
- 900. Goddamn it!
- 901. - I told you to leave me! Why didn't you?
- And I told you to get your ass back here!
- 902. - One of us was thinking about the mission!
- You were thinking about getting home.
- 903. I was trying to do the right thing!
- 904. Can you tell that to Doyle?
- 905. - CASE, how much time?
- Forty-five to an hour.
- 906. The stuff of life?
What's this gonna cost us, Brand?
- 907. A lot. Decades.
- 908. What happened to Miller?
- 909. Judging by the wreckage, she was
broken up by a wave soon after impact.
- 910. How's the wreckage stayed together
after all these years?
- 911. Because of the time slippage.
- 912. On this planet's time,
she just landed hours ago.
- 913. She probably just died minutes ago.
- 914. The data Doyle received was just
the initial status echoing endlessly.
- 915. Oh, we are not prepared for this.
- 916. You eggheads have the survival skills
of a Boy Scout troop.
- 917. Well, we got this far on our brains.
Farther than any human in history.
- 918. Well, not far enough!
- 919. And now we're stuck here till there
won't be anyone left on Earth to save.
- 920. I'm counting every minute,
same as you, Cooper.
- 921. Is there any possibility...
- 922. I don't know, some kind of a way
we can maybe all jump in a black hole?
- 923. Gain back the years?
- 924. Don't shake your head at me.
- 925. Time is relative, okay?
- 926. It can stretch
and it can squeeze, but...
- 927. it can't run backwards. It just can't.
- 928. The only thing that can move across
dimensions, like time, is gravity.
- 929. Okay.
- 930. The beings that led us here,
- 931. - ... through gravity, right?
- 932. Could they be talking to us
from the future?
- 933. - Maybe.
- Okay. If they can...
- 934. "They" are beings of five dimensions.
- 935. To them, time might be
another physical dimension.
- 936. To them...
- 937. the past might be a canyon
that they can climb into and the future...
- 938. a mountain they can climb up.
But to us, it's not, okay?
- 939. Look, Cooper, I screwed up. I'm sorry.
- 940. - But you knew about relativity.
- 941. Brand...
- 942. my daughter was 10 years old.
- 943. I couldn't teach her
Einstein's theories before I left.
- 944. Couldn't you have told her
you were going to save the world?
- 945. No.
- 946. When you become a parent,
one thing becomes really clear.
- 947. And that is that you want to make sure
your children feel safe.
- 948. And it rules out telling a 10-year-old
that the world is ending.
- 949. Cooper?
- 950. - How long for the engines, CASE?
- A minute or two.
- 951. We don't have it. Helmets on!
- 952. Brand, co-pilot, you're up.
- 953. CASE, blow the cabin oxygen
through the main thrusters!
- 954. - We're gonna spark it.
- Roger that.
- 955. - Locked.
- 956. Engines up!
- 957. Hello, Rom.
- 958. I've waited years.
- 959. How...? How many years?
- 960. - By now it must be...
- Twenty-three years...
- 961. four months, eight days.
- 962. Doyle?
- 963. I thought I was prepared.
I knew the theory.
- 964. Reality's different.
- 965. And Miller?
- 966. There's nothing here for us.
- 967. Why didn't you sleep?
- 968. Oh, I had a couple of stretches.
- 969. But I stopped believing
you were coming back.
- 970. And something seemed wrong
about dreaming my life away.
- 971. I learned what I could
from the black hole...
- 972. but I couldn't send anything
to your father.
- 973. We've been receiving,
but nothing gets out.
- 974. - Is he alive?
- Oh, yeah.
- 975. - Yeah?
- 976. We've got years of messages stored.
- 977. Cooper.
- 978. Messages span 23 years.
- 979. Play it from the beginning.
- 980. Hey, Dad.
- 981. Checking in. Saying hi.
- 982. Finished second in school.
- 983. Miss Kurling's still
giving me C's though.
- 984. Pulled me down, but seconds not bad.
- 985. Grandpa attended the ceremony.
- 986. Oh.
- 987. I met another girl, Dad.
- 988. I...
- 989. I really think this is the one.
- 990. Name's Lois. That's her right there.
- 991. Murphy stole Grandpa's car.
- 992. She crashed it. She's okay, though.
- 993. Hey, Dad.
- 994. Look at this!
- 995. You're a grandpa.
- 996. His name's Jesse.
- 997. I kind of wanted to call him Coop,
but Lois says... maybe next time.
- 998. Donald says he's already earned the
"great" part, so we just leave it at that.
- 999. Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
- 1000. Say "Bye-bye, Grandpa."
Bye-bye, Grandpa. Okay.
- 1001. Sorry it's been a while.
- 1002. Just...
- 1003. what with Jesse and all.
- 1004. Grandpa died last week.
- 1005. We buried him out in the back forty
next to Mom and...
- 1006. Jesse.
- 1007. Which is where we would have buried you
if you'd ever...
- 1008. come back.
- 1009. Murph was there at the funeral.
- 1010. We don't see her that much,
but she came for that.
- 1011. You aren't listening to this,
I know that.
- 1012. All these messages are just, like...
- 1013. drifting out there in the darkness.
- 1014. Lois says that...
- 1015. I have to let you go.
- 1016. And...
- 1017. So...
- 1018. I guess I'm letting you go.
- 1019. I don't know where you are, Dad...
- 1020. but I hope that you're at peace.
- 1021. Goodbye.
- 1022. Hey, Dad.
- 1023. Hey, Murph.
- 1024. You son of a bitch.
- 1025. I never made one of these
when you were still responding...
- 1026. because I was so mad at you for leaving.
- 1027. And then when you went quiet, it...
- 1028. seemed like I should live
with that decision. And I have.
- 1029. But today's my birthday.
- 1030. And it's a special one,
because you told me...
- 1031. You once told me that when you came back,
we might be the same age.
- 1032. And today I'm the age you were
when you left.
- 1033. So it would be a real good time
for you to come back.
- 1034. I didn't mean to intrude. It's just that
I've never seen you in here before.
- 1035. I've never been in here before.
- 1036. I talk to Amelia all the time. It helps.
- 1037. - I'm glad you've started.
- I haven't. I...
- 1038. I just had something
I needed to get out.
- 1039. - I know they're still out there.
- I know.
- 1040. There are so many reasons their
communications might not be getting through.
- 1041. I know, professor.
- 1042. I'm not sure what I'm more afraid of.
- 1043. Them never coming back or...
- 1044. coming back to find we've failed.
- 1045. Then let's succeed.
- 1046. So...
- 1047. back to the fourth iteration.
Let's run it through some new fields.
- 1048. With respect, professor,
we've tried that hundreds of times.
- 1049. It only has to work once, Murph.
- 1050. Every rivet that they strike
could have been a bullet.
- 1051. We've done well for the world here...
- 1052. whether or not we crack the equation
before I kick the bucket.
- 1053. - Don't be morbid, professor.
- I'm not afraid of death.
- 1054. I'm an old physicist.
- 1055. I'm afraid of time.
- 1056. Time.
- 1057. You're afraid of time.
- 1058. We've been trying
to solve the equation...
- 1059. without changing
the underlying assumption about time.
- 1060. - And?
- And that means...
- 1061. each iteration is an attempt
to prove its own proof.
- 1062. It's recursive. It's nonsensical.
- 1063. Are you calling my life's work...
- 1064. No, I'm saying
that you've been trying to...
- 1065. finish it with one arm...
No, with both arms tied behind your back.
- 1066. And I don't understand why.
- 1067. I'm an old man, Murph.
- 1068. Can we take this point up
at another time?
- 1069. I want to talk to my daughter.
- 1070. Stepping out into the universe...
- 1071. we must confront the reality
of interstellar travel.
- 1072. We must reach far beyond
our own lifespans.
- 1073. We must think not as individuals
but as a species.
- 1074. Do not go gentle into that good night
- 1075. TARS kept the Endurance
right where we needed her.
- 1076. But the trip took years longer
than we anticipated.
- 1077. We no longer have the fuel
to visit both prospects, so...
- 1078. we have to choose.
- 1079. But how?
- 1080. They're both promising.
- 1081. Edmunds' data is better, but Dr. Mann
is the one still transmitting, so...
- 1082. We've no reason to suspect
Edmunds's data would have soured.
- 1083. His world has key elements
to sustain human life.
- 1084. - As does Dr. Mann's.
- Cooper, this is my field.
- 1085. And...
- 1086. I really believe Edmunds'
is the better prospect.
- 1087. - Why?
- Gargantua, that's why.
- 1088. Look at Miller's planet.
Hydrocarbons, organics, yes...
- 1089. but no life. Sterile.
We'll find the same thing on Mann's.
- 1090. Because of the black hole?
- 1091. Murphy's Law.
Whatever can happen will happen.
- 1092. Accident is the first building block
- 1093. But when you're orbiting a black hole
not enough can happen.
- 1094. It sucks in asteroids and comets,
- 1095. other events which would
otherwise reach you.
- 1096. We need to go further afield.
- 1097. You once said that Dr. Mann...
- 1098. was the best of us.
- 1099. He's remarkable.
We're only here because of him.
- 1100. And yet... Yet here he is.
- 1101. He's on the ground, and he's sending
a very unambiguous message,
- 1102. telling us to come to his planet.
- 1103. Granted, but Edmunds' data
is more promising.
- 1104. We should vote.
- 1105. Well, if we vote,
there's something you should know.
- 1106. Brand? He has a right to know.
- 1107. That has nothing to do with it.
- 1108. - What does?
- She's in love with Wolf Edmunds.
- 1109. - Is that true?
- 1110. And that makes me
want to follow my heart.
- 1111. But maybe we've spent too long trying
to figure all this out with theory.
- 1112. You're a scientist, Brand.
- 1113. So listen to me...
- 1114. when I say that love
isn't something we invented. It's...
- 1115. observable, powerful.
- 1116. It has to mean something.
- 1117. Love has meaning, yes. Social utility,
social bonding, child rearing...
- 1118. We love people who have died.
Where's the social utility in that?
- 1119. None.
- 1120. Maybe it means something more,
something we can't...
- 1121. yet understand.
- 1122. Maybe it's some evidence, some...
- 1123. artifact of a higher dimension
that we can't consciously perceive.
- 1124. I'm drawn across the universe
to someone I haven't seen in a decade...
- 1125. who I know is probably dead.
- 1126. Love is the one thing
we're capable of perceiving...
- 1127. that transcends dimensions
of time and space.
- 1128. Maybe we should trust that,
even if we can't understand it yet.
- 1129. All right, Cooper...
- 1130. yes...
- 1131. the tiniest possibility
of seeing Wolf again excites me.
- 1132. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.
- 1133. Honestly, Amelia...
- 1134. it might.
- 1135. TARS, chart a course for Dr. Mann's.
- 1136. We'll lose about a third again.
But next year...
- 1137. Next year I'm gonna work Nelson's farm
and we'll make it up.
- 1138. What happened to Nelson?
- 1139. Murph, have you eaten enough?
Would you like some more souffle?
- 1140. Oh, no. I'm full, thanks.
It was delicious.
- 1141. Coop, finish your fritter, please.
- 1142. Will you spend the night? Your room
is exactly as you left it. It's ready.
- 1143. I need to get back.
- 1144. My sewing machine is in there,
but there's plenty...
- 1145. I need to...
- 1146. Too many memories.
- 1147. We might have something for that.
- 1148. The dust.
- 1149. Lois, I have a friend who...
- 1150. could look at his lungs.
- 1151. - Amelia, I'm sorry.
- You were just being objective.
- 1152. Unless you're punishing me
for screwing up on Miller's planet.
- 1153. No, this wasn't a personal decision.
- 1154. If you're wrong, you will have
a very personal decision to make.
- 1155. Your fuel calculations
are based on a return journey.
- 1156. Strike out on Mann's planet, and we'll have
to decide whether to return home...
- 1157. or push on to Edmunds' with Plan B.
- 1158. Starting a colony could save us
- 1159. You might have to decide
between seeing your children again...
- 1160. and the future of the human race.
- 1161. I trust you'll be as objective then.
- 1162. He's been asking for you
since he came to.
- 1163. We were trying to reach you.
- 1164. Murph.
- 1165. I'm here, professor.
- 1166. I let you all down.
- 1167. No, you got us so far. Real close.
- 1168. I'll finish what you started.
- 1169. Good, good Murph.
- 1170. You had faith...
- 1171. all those...
- 1172. all those years.
- 1173. I...
- 1174. I asked you to have faith.
- 1175. I wanted you to believe...
- 1176. that your father...
- 1177. would come back.
- 1178. I do, professor.
- 1179. - Forgive me, Murph.
- There's nothing to forgive.
- 1180. I... I lied, Murph.
- 1181. I lied to you.
- 1182. There was no need for him to...
- 1183. To come back.
- 1184. There is no way to help us.
- 1185. But Plan A...
- 1186. All this. All these people.
- 1187. And the equation.
- 1188. Did my father know?
- 1189. Did he leave me?
- 1190. Do...
- 1191. not...
- 1192. go...
- 1193. gentle...
- 1194. No.
- 1195. No!
- 1196. You can't leave.
- 1197. You... No.
- 1198. Dr. Brand, I'm sorry to tell you
that your father died today. He had no pain.
- 1199. He was at peace.
- 1200. I'm very sorry for your loss.
- 1201. Brand, did you know?
- 1202. He told you, right?
- 1203. You knew.
- 1204. This was all a sham.
- 1205. You left us here.
- 1206. To suffocate.
- 1207. To starve.
- 1208. Frozen cloud.
- 1209. It's okay. It's okay.
- 1210. It's okay.
- 1211. Pray you never learn...
- 1212. just how good it can be
to see another face.
- 1213. I hadn't a lot of hope
to begin with, but...
- 1214. after so long, I had none.
- 1215. My supplies were completely exhausted.
- 1216. The last time I went to sleep,
I didn't even set a waking date.
- 1217. You have literally raised me
from the dead.
- 1218. Lazarus.
- 1219. - What about the others?
- I'm afraid you're it, sir.
- 1220. So far, surely.
- 1221. No, our present situation is that there's
very little chance of rescuing any others.
- 1222. Dr. Mann. Dr. Mann?
- 1223. Tell us about your world.
- 1224. Our world, we hope.
- 1225. Our world... is cold...
- 1226. stark...
- 1227. but undeniably beautiful.
- 1228. The days are 67 hours long, cold.
- 1229. The nights are...
- 1230. 67 far colder hours.
- 1231. The gravity is a very, very pleasant
80 percent of the Earth's.
- 1232. Now, up here where I landed,
the water is alkali...
- 1233. and the air has too much ammonia to breathe
for more than just a few minutes...
- 1234. but down at the surface,
and there is a surface...
- 1235. the chlorine dissipates.
- 1236. The ammonia gives way to crystalline
hydrocarbons and breathable air.
- 1237. To organics. Possibly even to life.
- 1238. We might be sharing this world.
- 1239. These readings are from the surface?
- 1240. Over the years,
I've dropped various probes.
- 1241. - How far have you explored?
- I've mounted several major expeditions.
- 1242. But with oxygen in limited supply,
KIPP there really did most of the legwork.
- 1243. - What went wrong with him, sir?
- 1244. He misidentified the first organics
we found as ammonia crystals.
- 1245. We struggled on for a time,
but ultimately I decommissioned him and...
- 1246. used his power source
to keep the mission going.
- 1247. I thought I was alone
before I shut him down.
- 1248. Would you like me to look at him?
- 1249. No. No. He needs a human touch.
- 1250. Dr. Brand, CASE is relaying a message
for you from the comm station.
- 1251. Okay. Be right there. Excuse me.
- 1252. Dr. Brand, I'm sorry to tell you
that your father died today.
- 1253. He had no pain.
- 1254. He was at peace.
- 1255. I'm sorry for your loss.
- 1256. Is that Murph?
- 1257. She's... She's grown.
- 1258. Brand, did you know?
- 1259. He told you, right?
- 1260. You knew.
- 1261. This was all a sham.
- 1262. You left us here.
- 1263. To suffocate.
- 1264. To starve.
- 1265. Did my father know too?
- 1266. Dad?
- 1267. I just want to know...
- 1268. if you left me here to die.
- 1269. I just have to know.
- 1270. Cooper, my...
- 1271. My father dedicated...
- 1272. his whole life to Plan A.
I have no idea what she's talking about.
- 1273. I do.
- 1274. He never even hoped
to get the people off the Earth?
- 1275. No.
- 1276. But he's been trying to solve
the gravity equation for 40 years.
- 1277. Amelia, your father solved his equation
before I even left.
- 1278. Then why wouldn't he use it?
- 1279. The equation couldn't reconcile relativity
with quantum mechanics. You need more.
- 1280. More? More what?
- 1281. More data.
You need to see into a black hole.
- 1282. The laws of nature prohibit
a naked singularity.
- 1283. Romilly, is that true?
- 1284. If a black hole is an oyster,
then the singularity's the pearl inside.
- 1285. The gravity's so strong, it's always
hidden in darkness... behind the horizon.
- 1286. That's why we call it a black hole.
- 1287. Okay, but if we see
beyond the horizon...
- 1288. We can't, Coop.
- 1289. There are some things
that aren't meant to be known.
- 1290. Your father had to find another way
to save the human race from extinction.
- 1291. - Plan B. A colony.
- Why not tell people?
- 1292. - Why keep building those stations?
- He knew how hard it would be...
- 1293. to get people to work together to save
the species instead of themselves.
- 1294. - Or their children.
- 1295. You never would've come here
unless you believed you would save them.
- 1296. Evolution has yet to transcend
that simple barrier.
- 1297. We can care deeply,
selflessly about those we know,
- 1298. but that empathy rarely extends
beyond our line of sight.
- 1299. But the lie.
- 1300. That monstrous lie?
- 1301. Unforgivable. And he knew that.
- 1302. He was prepared to destroy his own humanity
in order to save the species.
- 1303. - He made an incredible sacrifice.
- 1304. An incredible sacrifice is being made
by the people on Earth who are gonna die!
- 1305. Because in his fucking arrogance...
- 1306. he declared their case hopeless.
- 1307. I'm sorry, Cooper...
their case is hopeless.
- 1308. No. No.
- 1309. We are the future.
- 1310. Cooper, what can I do?
- 1311. Let me go home.
- 1312. You're absolutely positive?
- 1313. His solution was correct.
He'd had it for years.
- 1314. - It's worthless?
- It's half the answer.
- 1315. Okay, how do you find the other half?
- 1316. Out there? A black hole.
- 1317. - But stuck down here on Earth?
- 1318. I'm not sure you can.
- 1319. God, they just pack up and leave.
- 1320. What are they hoping to find?
- 1321. Survival.
- 1322. Damn it.
- 1323. Murph, don't...?
Don't people have a right to know?
- 1324. Panic won't help. We just
have to keep working, same as ever.
- 1325. But isn't that exactly what Professor Brand
was manipulating us to do?
- 1326. Brand gave up on us.
I'm still trying to solve this.
- 1327. So...
- 1328. do you have an idea?
- 1329. A feeling.
- 1330. I told you about my ghost.
- 1331. My dad thought I called it a ghost...
- 1332. because I was scared of it.
- 1333. But I was never scared of it.
- 1334. I called it a ghost because it felt...
- 1335. It felt like a person.
- 1336. It was trying to tell me something.
- 1337. If there's an answer here on Earth,
it's back there...
- 1338. somehow, in that room.
So I have to find it.
- 1339. We're running out of time.
- 1340. What about auxiliary oxygen scrubbers?
- 1341. No, they can stay.
I'll be sleeping anyway.
- 1342. - Hey, Coop?
- 1343. I have a suggestion
for your return journey.
- 1344. - Yeah, what's that?
- Have one last crack at the black hole.
- 1345. I'm going home, Rom.
- 1346. Yeah, I know.
This isn't going to cost you any time.
- 1347. There's a chance for the people on Earth.
- 1348. - Talk to me.
- Gargantua's an older spinning black hole.
- 1349. - It's what we call a gentle singularity.
- 1350. They're hardly gentle.
But the tidal gravity is so quick that...
- 1351. something crossing the horizon fast
might survive. A probe, say.
- 1352. - What happens after it crosses?
- After the horizon is a complete mystery.
- 1353. So, what's to say
there isn't some way that the probe...
- 1354. can glimpse the singularity
and relay the quantum data?
- 1355. If he's equipped to transmit
every form of energy that can pulse.
- 1356. Just when did this probe
become a "he," professor?
- 1357. TARS is the obvious candidate.
- 1358. I've already told him what to look for.
- 1359. I'd need the old optical transmitter
off KIPP, Cooper.
- 1360. You'd do this for us?
- 1361. Before you get all teary, remember that
as a robot I have to do anything you say.
- 1362. - Your cue light's broken.
- I'm not joking.
- 1363. I'm gonna need TARS to remove and adapt
some components from KIPP.
- 1364. I don't want to disturb
his archival functions.
- 1365. I'll supervise.
- 1366. All right.
- 1367. Dr. Mann, we need to
find three secure sites.
- 1368. One for Brand's lab, two for habitat.
- 1369. Once those modules have landed,
you don't want to move them.
- 1370. I can take you to the probe sites,
but I don't think...
- 1371. these conditions are gonna hold.
I think we should wait.
- 1372. CASE is headed down
with the rest of the distillery equipment.
- 1373. I'd really like to secure
those sites by nightfall.
- 1374. Well, these squalls do usually blow over.
- 1375. Okay, then.
- 1376. - You'll need a long-range transmitter.
- Got it.
- 1377. - Are you charged?
- 1378. Follow me.
- 1379. - TARS, 72 hours, yeah?
- Roger that, Cooper.
- 1380. Brand told me why you feel
you have to go back.
- 1381. But I'd be remiss
if I didn't at least mention...
- 1382. that a mission such as ours
could certainly use an extra engineer.
- 1383. You better slow down, turbo.
Safety first, CASE, remember.
- 1384. Safety first, Cooper.
- 1385. I have to tell you, Dr. Mann,
I'm honored to be a part of this.
- 1386. But once we set up base camp and secure
those modules, my work's done here.
- 1387. I'm going home.
- 1388. You have attachments.
But even without a family...
- 1389. I can promise you that that yearning
to be with other people is powerful.
- 1390. That emotion is at the foundation...
- 1391. of what makes us human.
It's not to be taken lightly.
- 1392. - How long have you had that cough?
- A while.
- 1393. Mom lets me play in here.
- 1394. I don't touch your stuff.
- 1395. Just take this gently.
- 1396. You know why we couldn't just send machines
on these missions, don't you, Cooper?
- 1397. A machine doesn't improvise well
because you can't program a fear of death.
- 1398. Our survival instinct is our single
greatest source of inspiration.
- 1399. Take you, for example.
- 1400. A father...
- 1401. with a survival instinct
that extends to your kids.
- 1402. What does research tell us is the last thing
you're going to see before you die?
- 1403. Your children. Their faces.
- 1404. At the moment of death, your mind's
gonna push a little bit harder to survive.
- 1405. For them.
- 1406. Deep breath.
- 1407. Hey. I bet you're Coop.
Why don't you have a seat here for me?
- 1408. It's bad. They cannot stay here.
- 1409. - Okay?
- 1410. TARS, what's taking so long?
- 1411. Professor, I am having trouble
completing the boot up.
- 1412. I don't understand.
- 1413. It's funny.
- 1414. When I left Earth...
- 1415. I thought I was prepared to die.
- 1416. The truth is...
- 1417. I never really considered the possibility
that my planet wasn't the one.
- 1418. Nothing worked out the way
it was supposed to.
- 1419. Let's go.
- 1420. All right, buddy,
give me a big deep breath.
- 1421. What is this?
- 1422. What are you doing?
- 1423. I'm sorry!
I can't let you leave with that ship.
- 1424. We're gonna need it
to complete the mission...
- 1425. once the others realize
what this place isn't.
- 1426. We cannot survive here.
I'm sorry! I'm sorry!
- 1427. - They can't stay here anymore.
- You have to leave right now.
- 1428. Let me make something abundantly clear.
You have a responsibility...
- 1429. - Oh! Jesus!
- Coop, get her stuff. She's going home.
- 1430. Dad didn't raise you
to be this dumb, Tom!
- 1431. Dad didn't raise me, Grandpa did.
And he's buried out back with Mom and Jesse.
- 1432. You faked all the data?
- 1433. Yeah.
- 1434. There's no surface?
- 1435. No.
- 1436. I tried to do my duty, Cooper...
- 1437. but I knew the day that I arrived here
that this place had nothing.
- 1438. And I resisted
the temptation for years...
- 1439. but I knew that...
- 1440. if I just pressed that button, then...
- 1441. somebody would come and save me.
- 1442. You fucking coward.
- 1443. Yes.
- 1444. Yes.
- 1445. Yes.
- 1446. Yes.
- 1447. Listen, if you're not going to go,
let your family go. Just save your family.
- 1448. And we go live underground with you?
Pray that Daddy comes to save us?
- 1449. Dad's not coming back.
He never was coming back. It's up to me.
- 1450. You're gonna save everybody?
Because Dad couldn't do it.
- 1451. Dad didn't even try!
Dad just abandoned us!
- 1452. He left us here to die.
- 1453. Nobody's going with you.
- 1454. You gonna wait for your next kid to die?
- 1455. Get out.
- 1456. And don't come back.
- 1457. You can keep my stuff.
- 1458. Stop it!
- 1459. No. No!
- 1460. Dr. Mann, there's a 50-50 chance
you're gonna kill yourself!
- 1461. Those are the best odds
I've had in years.
- 1462. Don't judge me, Cooper.
- 1463. You were never tested like I was.
Few men have been.
- 1464. You tried your best, Murph.
- 1465. You're feeling it, aren't you?
- 1466. The survival instinct.
- 1467. That's what drove me. It's what drives
all of us. And it's what's gonna save us.
- 1468. Because I want to save all of us.
For you, Cooper.
- 1469. I'm sorry, I can't watch you
go through this. I'm sorry.
- 1470. I thought I could, but I can't.
- 1471. I'm here. I'm here for you.
- 1472. Just listen to my voice, Cooper.
- 1473. I'm right here.
- 1474. You're not alone.
- 1475. Do you see your children?
- 1476. It's okay.
- 1477. They're right there with you.
- 1478. Did Professor Brand tell you
that poem before you left?
- 1479. Do you remember?
- 1480. Do not go gentle into that good night
- 1481. Old age should burn and rave
At close of day
- 1482. Rage, rage against
the dying of the light
- 1483. Brand! Help!
- 1484. - Help!
- 1485. CASE!
- 1486. No air.
- 1487. Ammonia.
- 1488. Cooper. Cooper, we're coming! CASE!
- 1489. - I have a fix.
- Go! Go, go, go!
- 1490. And away!
- 1491. Cooper, we're coming.
Hang in there. Don't talk.
- 1492. Try to breathe as little as possible.
We're almost there.
- 1493. There's a security lockout, sir.
It requires a person to access function.
- 1494. It's all yours, sir.
- 1495. Try not to breathe.
- 1496. We're coming. We're coming right now.
CASE, come on! Come on!
- 1497. We got to go faster, CASE!
Faster, faster, faster!
- 1498. Hang in there. Come on.
- 1499. I see him, I see him!
CASE, bank! Bank right!
- 1500. Cooper! Cooper! I'm here!
- 1501. This data makes no sense.
- 1502. I'm sorry.
- 1503. - What?
- Mann was lying!
- 1504. Go. Go.
- 1505. Romilly.
- 1506. Romilly!
- 1507. Romilly! Do you read me, Romilly?
- 1508. Step back, professor! Step back!
- 1509. - Romilly...
- Romilly, do you read me?
- 1510. Keep watch!
- 1511. Lois?
- 1512. - What happened to caution, CASE?
- Safety first, Cooper.
- 1513. Romilly? Romilly, do you read me?
This is Brand.
- 1514. Romilly?
- 1515. Dr. Brand. Cooper.
There's been an explosion.
- 1516. Dr. Mann's compound.
- 1517. TARS, TARS, 10 o'clock!
- 1518. Let me know when TARS is aboard.
- 1519. Romilly did not survive.
- 1520. I could not save him.
- 1521. - TARS is in.
- I'll take her now.
- 1522. - Do we have a fix on the Ranger?
- He's pushing into orbit!
- 1523. If he takes control
of that ship, we're dead.
- 1524. - He'd maroon us?
- He is marooning us.
- 1525. I'll meet you guys downstairs.
Go wait by the car.
- 1526. Come on! Give me your bag.
- 1527. Get in the backseat.
Get in the backseat now!
- 1528. Dr. Mann, please respond.
- 1529. Dr. Mann, please respond!
- 1530. He doesn't know
the Endurance docking procedure.
- 1531. - The autopilot does.
- Not since TARS disabled it.
- 1532. Nice.
- 1533. - What's your trust setting, TARS?
- Lower than yours apparently.
- 1534. Do not attempt docking.
I repeat, do not attempt docking.
- 1535. Please res...
- 1536. Auto-docking sequence withheld.
- 1537. - Override.
- 1538. Override.
- 1539. Unauthorized.
- 1540. Do not attempt docking. I repeat,
do not attempt docking. Please resp...
- 1541. Moving slowly toward the Endurance.
- 1542. Imperfect contact.
- 1543. - Override.
- Hatch lockout.
- 1544. - Is he locked on yet?
- 1545. Dr. Mann, do not...
- 1546. Hatch lockout disengaged.
- 1547. Dr. Mann, do not,
I repeat, do not open the hatch.
- 1548. I repeat, do not open the hatch.
- 1549. If you open the hatch,
the airlock will depressurize.
- 1550. - What happens if he blows the airlock?
- Nothing good.
- 1551. Okay, pull back. Retro thrusters,
everything we've got, CASE!
- 1552. - Thrusters are full!
- 1553. Relay my transmission
to the onboard computer...
- 1554. and have it rebroadcast
as emergency P.A.
- 1555. Dr. Mann...
- 1556. I repeat, do not open
the inner hatch. I repeat...
- 1557. Brand?
- 1558. I don't know what he said to you...
- 1559. but I am taking command
of the Endurance.
- 1560. And then we can talk
about completing the mission.
- 1561. Dr. Mann, listen to me.
- 1562. This is not about my life.
- 1563. Or Cooper's life.
This is about all mankind.
- 1564. There is a moment...
- 1565. It is not sa...
- 1566. Oh, my God.
- 1567. - There's no point using fuel to chase...
- Analyze the Endurance's spin.
- 1568. - Cooper, what are you doing?
- 1569. Endurance rotation is 67, 68 RPM.
- 1570. Okay, get ready to match our spin
with the retro thrusters.
- 1571. - It's not possible.
- No... it's necessary.
- 1572. Endurance is hitting stratosphere!
- 1573. She's got no heat shield.
- 1574. - CASE, you ready?
- 1575. Cooper! This is no time for caution.
- 1576. CASE, if I black out,
you take the stick.
- 1577. TARS, get ready to engage
the docking mechanism.
- 1578. - Endurance is starting to heat.
- Twenty feet out.
- 1579. I need three degrees starboard, Cooper.
- 1580. Ten feet out.
- 1581. Cooper, we are lined up.
- 1582. Initiating spin!
- 1583. Come on, TARS.
- 1584. Come on, TARS!
- 1585. - We are locked, Cooper.
- Locked. Easing up!
- 1586. Easy.
- 1587. Easy.
- 1588. Retro thrusters!
- 1589. Main engines on.
- 1590. Pushing out of orbit. Come on, baby.
- 1591. Killing main engines!
- 1592. Okay, we're out of orbit.
- 1593. Okay. And for our next trick!
- 1594. It'll have to be good.
We're heading into Gargantua's pull.
- 1595. Oh, shit.
- 1596. - CASE, take the stick.
- Roger that.
- 1597. Cooper, we're slipping towards Gargantua.
- 1598. Shall I use main engines?
- 1599. No. We got to let her slide
as far as we can.
- 1600. - Give it to me.
- There's good news, there's bad news.
- 1601. Yeah, I've heard that one, TARS.
Give it to me straight.
- 1602. The backup generator kicked in,
so the system's stable. They're all good.
- 1603. Good.
- 1604. Okay. The navigational hub
has been completely destroyed.
- 1605. We don't have enough life support
to make it back to Earth, but...
- 1606. I think we can scratch our way
to Edmunds' planet.
- 1607. - What about fuel?
- Not enough. But I have a plan.
- 1608. We let Gargantua pull us down
close to her horizon.
- 1609. Then a powered slingshot around,
launching us towards Edmunds' planet.
- 1610. - Manually?
- That's what I'm here for.
- 1611. I'm gonna take us
just inside the critical orbit.
- 1612. - What about time slippage?
- Neither of us has time to worry...
- 1613. about relativity right now, Dr. Brand.
- 1614. I'm sorry, Cooper.
- 1615. Once we've gathered
enough speed around Gargantua...
- 1616. we use Lander 1...
- 1617. and Ranger 2 as rocket boosters to...
- 1618. push us out of the black hole's gravity.
- 1619. The Lender's linkages
have been destroyed...
- 1620. so we'll have to control manually.
- 1621. Once Lander 1 is spent,
TARS will detach...
- 1622. And get sucked into that black hole.
- 1623. Why does TARS have to detach?
- 1624. We have to shed the weight
to escape the gravity.
- 1625. Newton's third law.
- 1626. The only way humans have ever
figured out of getting somewhere...
- 1627. is to leave something behind.
- 1628. Cooper, you can't ask TARS
to do this for us.
- 1629. He's a robot. So you don't have
to ask him to do anything.
- 1630. - Cooper, you asshole!
- Sorry, you broke up a little bit there.
- 1631. It's what we intended, Dr. Brand.
- 1632. It's our only chance
to save people on Earth.
- 1633. If I can find a way to transmit
the quantum data I'll find in there...
- 1634. they might still make it.
- 1635. Let's just hope
there's still someone there to save.
- 1636. Maximum velocity achieved.
- 1637. Prepare to fire escape thrusters.
- 1638. - Ready?
- 1639. - Ready.
- Main engine ignition in three...
- 1640. two...
- 1641. one. Mark.
- 1642. Come on, baby.
- 1643. Lander 1 engines, on my mark.
- 1644. Three, two...
- 1645. one. Mark.
- 1646. Ranger 2 engines, on my mark.
- 1647. Three, two, one...
- 1648. - Mark.
- 1649. This little maneuver's
gonna cost us 51 years!
- 1650. You don't sound so bad for pushing 120!
- 1651. Lander 1, prepare to detach on my mark.
- 1652. Three, two...
- 1653. - one. Mark.
- 1654. - Goodbye, TARS.
- Goodbye, Dr. Brand.
- 1655. - See you on the other side, Coop.
- See you there, Slick!
- 1656. Okay, CASE.
- 1657. - Nice reckless flying!
- Learned from the master.
- 1658. - Ranger 2, prepare to detach.
- 1659. No! No! Cooper! What are you doing?
- 1660. Newton's third law.
You got to leave something behind.
- 1661. You told me we had enough resources
for both of us.
- 1662. We agreed, Amelia...
- 1663. 90 percent.
- 1664. Don't.
- 1665. Detach.
- 1666. Okay, I am nosing down.
- 1667. Approaching the event horizon.
- 1668. Portside, dipping down beneath it
to go through it.
- 1669. Heading towards blackness.
- 1670. I have a visual of the event.
- 1671. It's all black.
- 1672. TARS, do you read me? It's all blackness.
- 1673. TARS! Do you read me? Over.
- 1674. Okay.
- 1675. Screens...
- 1676. getting interference.
- 1677. Losing control of the stick.
I got flashes.
- 1678. Flashes of lightness and blackness.
- 1679. The turbulence in the gravity
- 1680. The computers are going down. Agh.
- 1681. Gravitational pull.
I'm losing control of the stick.
- 1682. Murph? Murph, come on!
- 1683. Eject. Eject.
- 1684. Eject.
- 1685. Eject.
- 1686. Eject.
- 1687. Eject.
- 1688. Murph.
- 1689. Murph! Murph! Murph!
- 1690. Murph.
- 1691. No, no, no!
- 1692. Murph!
- 1693. Murph! No! No!
- 1694. If you're leaving, just go.
- 1695. No, no. No.
- 1696. No, don't go. Don't go, you idiot.
- 1697. Don't go!
- 1698. Morse. Morse.
- 1699. Morse.
- 1700. Dot. Dot.
- 1701. S.
- 1702. T.
- 1703. A.
- 1704. Dash!
- 1705. Dash! Dash!
- 1706. Murph!
- 1707. Murph, we don't have time for this!
- 1708. Y.
- 1709. "Stay!"
- 1710. Come on. Come on, Murph. Come on!
- 1711. What's it say? What's it say, Murph?
- 1712. What's it say?
- 1713. "Stay."
- 1714. Tell him, Murph. Make him stay.
- 1715. Make him stay, Murph.
- 1716. Make him stay, Murph.
- 1717. Don't let me leave, Murph!
- 1718. Don't let me leave, Murph!
- 1719. No! No! No!
- 1720. It was you.
- 1721. You were my ghost.
- 1722. Cooper. Cooper. Come in, Cooper.
- 1723. - TARS?
- Roger that.
- 1724. - You survived.
- 1725. in their fifth dimension.
- 1726. They saved us.
- 1727. Yeah? Who the hell is "they"?
And just why would they want to help us?
- 1728. I don't know, but they constructed
this three-dimensional space...
- 1729. inside their five-dimensional reality
to allow you to understand it.
- 1730. Yeah, that ain't working.
- 1731. Yes, it is.
- 1732. You've seen that time is represented here
as a physical dimension.
- 1733. You have worked out that you can exert
a force across space-time.
- 1734. Gravity to send a message.
- 1735. Affirmative.
- 1736. Gravity...
- 1737. can cross the dimensions, including time.
- 1738. Apparently.
- 1739. Do you have the quantum data?
- 1740. Roger. I have it.
- 1741. I am transmitting it on all wavelengths,
but nothing is getting out, Cooper.
- 1742. I can do this. I can do this.
- 1743. But such complicated data to a child?
- 1744. Not just any child.
- 1745. What else? Oh, come on, Dad.
- 1746. Murph, the fire's out! Come on!
- 1747. Even if you communicate it here,
- 1748. she won't understand its
significance for years.
- 1749. I get that, TARS.
- 1750. But we've got to figure something out
or the people on Earth are gonna die. Think!
- 1751. Cooper...
- 1752. they didn't bring us here
to change the past.
- 1753. Say that again.
- 1754. They didn't bring us here
to change the past.
- 1755. No, they didn't bring us here at all.
- 1756. We brought ourselves.
- 1757. TARS, give me the coordinates
for NASA in binary.
- 1758. In binary. Roger. Feeding data.
- 1759. "It's not a ghost."
- 1760. "It's gravity."
- 1761. Don't you get it yet, TARS?
- 1762. I brought myself here!
- 1763. We're here to communicate
with the three-dimensional world.
- 1764. We're the bridge!
- 1765. I thought they chose me.
- 1766. - But they didn't choose me, they chose her.
- For what, Cooper?
- 1767. To save the world.
- 1768. All of this is one little girl's bedroom.
- 1769. It's infinitely complex.
- 1770. They have access to infinite time and space,
but they're not bound by anything!
- 1771. They can't find a specific place in time.
They can't communicate.
- 1772. That's why I'm here.
I'm gonna find a way to tell Murph...
- 1773. just like I found this moment.
- 1774. - How, Cooper?
- Love, TARS, love.
- 1775. It's just like Brand said. My connection
with Murph, it is quantifiable.
- 1776. It's the key!
- 1777. What are we here to do?
- 1778. Find how to tell her.
- 1779. The watch.
- 1780. The watch.
- 1781. That's it.
- 1782. We code the data into the movement
of the second hand.
- 1783. TARS, translate the data into Morse
and feed it to me.
- 1784. Translating data to Morse.
Cooper, what if she never came back for it?
- 1785. She will. She will.
- 1786. Murph, I can see his car!
- 1787. He's coming, Murph!
- 1788. Okay. I'm coming down.
- 1789. How do you know?
- 1790. Because I gave it to her.
- 1791. Roger. Morse is dot-dot-dash-dot.
- 1792. Dot-dot...
- 1793. dash-dot.
- 1794. Dot-dash-dot-dot.
- 1795. Dot-dash-dot-dot.
- 1796. Dash-dash-dash.
- 1797. Dash, dash, dash.
- 1798. He came back!
- 1799. It was him all the time!
I didn't know. It was him!
- 1800. Dad's gonna save us.
- 1801. Eureka!
- 1802. It's traditional.
- 1803. Eureka!
- 1804. Did it work?
- 1805. I think it might have.
- 1806. How do you know?
- 1807. Because the bulk beings
are closing the tesseract.
- 1808. Don't you get it yet, TARS?
- 1809. They're not "beings."
- 1810. They're us.
- 1811. What I've been doing for Murph,
they're doing for me.
- 1812. For all of us.
- 1813. Cooper, people couldn't build this.
- 1814. No. No, not yet.
- 1815. But one day.
- 1816. Not you and me. But people.
- 1817. A civilization that's evolved past
the four dimensions we know.
- 1818. What happens now?
- 1819. Mr. Cooper.
- 1820. All right. Let's take it slow, sir.
- 1821. Nice and easy, Mr. Cooper.
- 1822. Remember, you're no spring chicken anymore.
Actually, you are 124 years old.
- 1823. Take it slow, sir.
- 1824. You were... extremely lucky.
- 1825. The Rangers found you with only minutes
left in your oxygen supply.
- 1826. Where am I?
- 1827. Cooper Station.
- 1828. Currently orbiting Saturn.
- 1829. Cooper Station.
- 1830. Nice of you to name it after me.
- 1831. What?
- 1832. The station isn't named after you, sir.
It's... named after your daughter.
- 1833. Although she's always maintained
just how important you were.
- 1834. Is she still alive?
- 1835. She'll be here in a couple weeks.
- 1836. She is far too old to be transferring
from another station...
- 1837. but when she heard
that you'd been found...
- 1838. well, this is... Murphy Cooper
we're talking about.
- 1839. Yes, it is.
- 1840. We'll have you checked out of here
in a couple days.
- 1841. I'm sure you'll be excited to see
what's in store.
- 1842. I actually... did a paper on you
in high school.
- 1843. I know all about your life
back on Earth.
- 1844. Oh, yeah.
- 1845. Right.
- 1846. If... If you'll follow me,
we've got a really good situation for you.
- 1847. So... when I made my suggestion
to Miss Cooper...
- 1848. I was delighted to hear
that she thought it was perfect.
- 1849. It was just constant.
Just that steady blow of dirt.
- 1850. Of course,
I didn't speak to her personally.
- 1851. We always set the plate upside-down.
- 1852. Glasses or cups,
whatever it was, upside-down.
- 1853. Well, my dad was a farmer.
Like everybody else back then.
- 1854. There just wasn't enough food.
- 1855. We wore little things, little strips...
- 1856. of sheet over our nose and mouth
so we wouldn't breathe so much of it.
- 1857. Well, it was pretty exciting for me
because it was hope.
- 1858. I don't care who describes it, there is
no way for it to be exaggerated.
- 1859. She did confirm
just how much you loved farming.
- 1860. - Oh, she did, did she?
- Yeah. Come here.
- 1861. Home sweet home.
Everything replaced and put back where it...
- 1862. - Hey, is this...?
- Oh, yeah.
- 1863. The machine we found out near Saturn
when we found you. Yes.
- 1864. Its... power source was shot,
but we could get you another one.
- 1865. Yes. Please.
- 1866. Settings.
- 1867. General settings.
- 1868. Security settings.
- 1869. Honesty, new setting:
- 1870. 95 percent.
- 1871. Confirmed. Additional customization?
- 1872. 75 percent.
- 1873. Confirmed.
- 1874. Auto self-destruct T-minus 10, nine...
- 1875. Let's make that 60 percent.
- 1876. Sixty percent confirmed.
- 1877. - Knock-knock.
- You want 55?
- 1878. Is this really what it was like?
- 1879. It was never this clean, Slick. Heh.
- 1880. I don't care much for this pretending
we're back where we started.
- 1881. I want to know where we are.
- 1882. Where we're going.
- 1883. - Mr. Cooper. The family's all in there.
- 1884. Family?
- 1885. Yeah, they all came out to see her. She's
been in cryo-sleep for almost two years.
- 1886. You told them I like farming.
- 1887. It was me, Murph.
- 1888. I was your ghost.
- 1889. I know.
- 1890. People didn't believe me.
They thought that I was doing it all myself.
- 1891. But...
- 1892. I knew who it was.
- 1893. Nobody believed me.
- 1894. But I knew you'd come back.
- 1895. How?
- 1896. Because my dad promised me.
- 1897. Well, I'm here now, Murph.
- 1898. I'm here.
- 1899. No.
- 1900. No parent should have to watch
their own child die.
- 1901. I have my kids here for me now.
- 1902. You go.
- 1903. Where?
- 1904. Brand.
- 1905. She's out there...
- 1906. setting up camp.
- 1907. Alone...
- 1908. in a strange galaxy.
- 1909. Maybe right now
she's settling in for the long nap...
- 1910. by the light of our new sun...
- 1911. in our new home.
