  • Gargantua?
  • Miller still looks good
  • She's coming up fast ... with one complication: the planet is much closer to Gargantua than we thought.
  • A very large black hole. Miller's and Dr. Mann's planets orbit it.
  • And Miller's is right on the horizon?
  • .
  • Look, I can swing around that neutron star and decelerate—
  • A basketball on the hoop. Landing there takes us dangerously close. A black hole that big has a huge gravitational pull!!!!
  • How bad?
  • It's not that, it's time. That gravity will slow our clock compared to Earth. Drastically.
  • oohhh
  • Every hour we spend down there will be maybe... seven years back on Earth.
  • That's relativity!!!
