Then his ship explodes. What happened there? It was a booby-trap set by Mann. It was activated when his robot was rebooted and the hidden data was accessed. Mann set it to cover his tracks and hide the fact that his planet wasn't habitable. Or at the very least pushed it Night Town - Margy Group - Double Face self-destruct mode as TARS joked it would do when Cooper increased its humour percentage.
If a robot found that the world was uninhabitable - it was to self-destruct and kill the scientist, once it had sent a report of its findings to prevent exactly what happened with Mann. These were world-class scientists - so could have Mcguyvered something from rocket-fuel and Killed By Humans - Erotic Cafe* - Interstellar Clash EPand it seems cruel for the mission leader to murder his scientists - but as they said - they had no resources to recon all of them - and the 12 were willing to die to find a habitable planet.

Mann must of set a booby-trap when rebooting the bot.
Pretty much this. Mann had been falsifying his data in an effort to have an exploratory team come to his planet to possibly rescue him. His robot had the real data, so Mann had to disable the robot unless he wanted his secret to get out. He likely rigged it to self-destruct in the event someone tried to get it back online, which would cause them to learn of his falsified data. When Romilly is looking at the robot's screen after he manages to reboot Johnny Cash - Emerald - Fiński Nóż, he notes the data he's seeing doesn't look right for what Mann had been reporting.

From wikipedia, Amelia rescues Cooper, and the two give chase, arriving in time to witness Mann docking improperly with Endurance, which kills him when the airlock depressurizes.
