Interstellar Docking Parodies are a series of YouTube spoof videos featuring the climactic docking scene from the 2014 science fiction movie Interstellar directed by Christopher Nolan.


In the movie, after Dr. Mann tricks the spaceship captain Cooper and his crew into coming to his planet, he attempts to escape by docking his ship onto the team's satellite. This attempt ultimately fails because Dr. Mann lacks the training to properly attach his ship onto the satellite. His error causes an explosion that tears some of the satellite apart, killing Mann instantly. Cooper then attempts docking on the satellite. He succeeds in a triumphant scene scored by Hans Zimmer and noteworthy for its special effects.
