Interview with Lachit Singh Physical Properties Specialist

Interview with Lachit Singh Physical Properties Specialist

This interview was conducted during the transit to Shanghai at the end of the expedition. It was a pleasure to conduct this interview. Lachit is one of the happiest scientists I have ever met. When I asked Lachit about what he likes about being a scientists he replied, “A scientist is someone who converts imaginative thoughts to reality.” I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.: https://youtu.be/JFsTmPAdMcA
