Interstellar is a fantasy space epic film, which is a story about humanity’s exit from the world for a new home in the stars. Life on earth is not ideal in Interstellar. There are gigantic dust storms and the destruction of the planet. NASA searches for a solution, as they look to the stars for an answer.

At the end of Interstellar, America (as it is portrayed) triumphantly escapes the dying planet. The ending of Interstellar is an ode to familial communications on the part of Nolan when Cooper is liberated from his daughter’s timeline somewhere by the rings of Saturn about a century after he leaves the solar system.

A lot of people are obviously confused about Interstellar. They do not understand anymore what has happened. You must remember that the end of Interstellar will also depend a lot on “They.” “They” will have the ability to exist beyond time, which means that they will always be available, which means that they can also live near the black hole.

You will also notice that Cooper made a lot of effort explaining a recap of the things that occurred to make it clearer to the audience what has happened. Yet, it seems that people have still gotten confused by the ending. If you are also confused, just remember that you can have your own interpretation of it. You can think that everything was just a recap or a recall of the things that occurred in the past.

Interstellar is a popular film by Christopher Nolan for many reasons, but one of the main reasons is that the ending of the film sparks conversation and generates confusion among viewers. The conversation makes more and more people want to watch it to understand the ending of the film.

Most understand the ending as Cooper going into the blackhole and find the people that were referred to as "they." While in the hole, Cooper is communicating with Murphy to have data exchanged. Murphy then tells Cooper to go to Edmunds planet to find Dr. Brand, which he boards a spaceship to do.

Without enough fuel to reach Edmund’s planet, the characters used a slingshot trick so close to Gargantua that the altered time added another 51 years. The method found Cooper and TARS quickly abandon to shed weight and propel Endurance using Newton’s Third Law to guarantee that Endurance reached Edmund’s planet.

They eject their craft and find themselves inside a gigantic tesseract built by future humans from various periods. Through the bookcases, Cooper can see through Murphy’s old room on earth and weakly interact with its gravity. Cooper and Tars are expelled from the tesseract. Cooper is picked up and awakens on a space habitat orbiting Saturn, where he comes together with elderly Murphy.

Cooper and TARS take a spacecraft to rejoin Amelia and CASE on Edmund’s habitable planet. The brand arrives on Edmund’s world, which is a much safer place than the other world’s visited by Endurance.

A lot of people are confused about the ending of Interstellar and they feel that they need some answers. At the end of Interstellar, Cooper realizes that the creatures that are called “they” are the humans that will start to appear in the future. They would need to save the humans of the past so that they have a chance to survive.

The main goal of the ending of the movie is to show people that every person will always have a different perception of time. For others, one moment can seem to last for an hour even if only seconds have passed. There are also some moments that seem to happen in an instant even if the person has tried to live it the best way he could.

A lot of people are curious about Interstellar and how it ends. There are some people who think that Cooper has been dead all along. There are also some people who think that maybe Tesseract did not happen at all. Instead, it was just the imagination of Cooper because he was already dying.

If you would check the timeline, it can get very confusing hence the reason why people have different interpretations of how this is supposed to end. What if Cooper actually survived when he got ejected from his craft? This is one type of ending that may be possible too. This is also the type of ending that fans would like to believe.
