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.
NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?
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.
