1 Hour on this Planet Is 7 Years on Earth refers to a series of two-panel image macros based on a scene from the 2014 science fiction film Interstellar. In the film, time passes in various ways depending on how deep into space the characters go. At one point, one hour on an alien planet is seven years on earth. In the meme, the first panel features a screenshot from the film along with the line, and the following panel features another screenshot with a reference to a piece to an anticipated piece media in the caption.


On October 26th, 2014, the science fiction film Interstellar premiered.[1] In the film, the characters embark on a journey through outer space, landing on a planet where, as the film explains, one hour is equal to seven years on Earth. A screenshot from the scene, as well as the concept for the temporal limitations of the planet are the basis for the meme.

The earliest example of the scene and concept being used as a meme occured sometime in 2016 on the website imgflip.[2] In this version, a one-panel image macro (shown below), features a screenshot of actors Anne Hathaway and Wes Bentley from the scene with the caption "1 HOUR ON THIS PLANET IS 7 YEARS ON EARTH GREAT LETS WAIT FOR THE DEPLOY QUEUE HERE."



On January 20th, 2017, the Facebook [3] account Batbale Defenders made one of the earliest two-panel versions of the meme. The post featured two versions of the screenshot and a caption that reads "1 hour on here is 7 years on Earth / Great, We wait here for the Justice League trailer." The post (shown below) received 40 reactions and 40 shares in eight months.

However, when the image was shared by the Facebook account Marvel & Dc comics,[4] it received more than 5,400 reactions and 470 shares. Meanwhile, on August 8th, it was shared by the Instagram [5] account @dc__eu and received more than 11,000 likes.

In August 2017, the meme increased in popularity. On August 9th, the meme appeared on the subreddit [6] /r/DC_Cinematic, receiving more than 200 likes. This version featured the Justice League variation. About 10 days later, another version appeared in the Game of Thrones subreddit /r/FreeFolk.[7] This version (shown below, left) was captioned "Good, we wait here for season 8." The post received more than 1,900 points (99% upvoted) and 100 comments.

On August 18th, the Facebook[8] account kaamelott.les.repliques.cultes posted a French variation of the meme. This post (shown below, right) received more than 11,000 reactions and 60 shares.
