Many of the IMAX lenses used during filming were prototypes; never before seen, and some last minute modifications had to be made to some of the lenses just a few days before filming began.
Don't judge me, Cooper. You were never tested like I was. Few men have been.
At 1 AU from Gargantua, Miller's planet would be traveling at roughly 0.99c. In the companion book, Kip Thrope explains that Cooper made use of Intermediate Black Holes (IMBH) of roughly 10,000 solar masses in order to match this velocity. However, using a top speed of 0.3 AU / month (the rate that Endurance traveled to Saturn), it would have taken at least three months in Cooper's time (proper time) for the ranger to travel from an IMBH that was just 1 AU away from Miller's planet to Miller's planet. Given the time dilation in the neighborhood of Miller's planet, roughly 15,000 years in Earth time is needed for this leg of the trip. Another three months from Miller's planet back to another IMBH gives a best case scenario of 30,000 years (Earth time) for a trip to Miller's planet and back.
