In the 2008 script, shortly after leaving the Ice Planet and being pulled into the black hole, another wormhole opens sending our galant crew to a space station that exists outside of normal space-time. A place where years pass within the bubble and only seconds/minutes pass outside of it. TARS is pulled into the event horizon shortly prior to landing on the Ice Planet. But it is discovered that TARS went through and found the station. TARS analyzes the station for 157 years, but spends a total of 300 years there, he later states that it took the Chinese robots 4,000 years to build it.
