Interstellar - Endurance Spacecraft Free Papercraft DownloadThis papercraft is the Endurance, the interstellar spacecraft that carries Joseph Cooper, Amelia Brand and the rest of the crew on their voyage through the wormhole, based on the 2014 sci-fi film Interstellar, the paper model is created by UHU02.

The primary mission of the Endurance is to find, rescue, and resupply the few marooned scientists of the previous Lazarus missions whose beacons indicated a suitable planet for sustaining human life in addition to establishing a base on the best candidate.

The Endurance's engine features advanced magneto plasma rockets which produce a distinctive blue exhaust plume of ionised gas when firing.

Interstellar - Endurance Spacecraft Papercraft 2The Endurance had taken years to complete by launch date, it is a rotating ring encompassing 12 pods and one pod links to the main cockpit via a tube. The spacecraft was meant for interplanetary voyages but has been repurposed for this unprecedented interstellar expedition. The ship had hyper-sleep chambers for the crew's two-year journey from Earth to Saturn's orbit where the wormhole was discovered.

The Endurance is presumably named for Ernest Shackleton's ship that was bound for Antarctica, attempting to cross on foot to the last uncharted continent, the Endurance set sail from England in August 1914.

In the docking scene where Coop is trying to dock with the partly damaged Endurance after Dr.Mann's demise, the Endurance is spinning around its center axis. As its perimeter was damaged, it would spin around its rather new center of mass.The docking bay itself would revolve around this new axis, making alignment much harder. [Source: wikia]
