  1. Holy smokes, I never realised just how much went into each “little” section of magnet – kinda mindblowing!

    Great video, loving this series so far.

    But Kishore, you could have at least acknowledged Indre’s “Ooh that sounds heavy” pun in relation to smashing together lead atoms around the 1:15 mark hehe 😉

  2. Really enjoying this series. I love Kishore’s passion and wonder while presenting this. Genuinely fascinating content too. Well done.

  3. I can’t encourage too many of those puns. She’ll be unstoppable then.

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone. Really like where we are going with the voice over bits in this piece.
