Ep. 119: New Horizons: A look at that thing that visited Pluto (And more)


In 2006, NASA sent a space probe with the ambitious idea of photographing Pluto. Not just did it do that, it also crossed something called Ultima Thule, the furthest body ever visited by something man-made. This is a spectacular feat of engineering (almost as good as the IVM folks managing to make this podcast sound decent after all our rambling).
So why space exploration? Why Pluto? What next? Can Chuck make a pun on 'Alpha Centauri'? For the answers for all these, join in as the Simblified lads take a look at this awesome little space probe.

It's an Indian podcast - probably the best to come from Malad West - that takes things that happen around us, and deconstructs them in a language you can understand, often surmounting several puns and PG Wodehouse references along the way. We aim to make you appear smarter during parties, job interviews, and dates.
Your hosts (and Twitter / Instagram handles) are Chuck (@chuck_gopal / @chuckofalltrades), Srikeit (@srikeit@srikeit) and Naren (@shenoyn@shenoynv). We are part of the IVM Podcast network, who, till this day, wonder why they signed us on.

Ep. 52: ISRO, Ro, Ro, Your Boat, Gently up to Space...

Our space agency has given us lots to be proud about recently! ISRO's stupendous achievement of launching 100+ satellites is remarkable, and has brought old stats involving auto rickshaw fares and a certain cartoon back into the limelight, including petulance from The New York Times.

Join the podcastronauts Chuck, Srikeit and Naren as they fly their spaceship of wisdom with a payload of bad jokes to the orbit of space exploration, how ISRO works and the only pun possible on the word 'equinox'. It's all happening here on Simblified, so 3, 2, 1...

Memorable quote from the episode:

Naren - A PSLV Rocket is as humongous as a 14 storey building.

Srikeit - Then we have hope that one day Antilla will take off and go away.
