National Geographic is set to answer the question of what’s the science behind some of the most jaw-dropping acts of stupidity. A brand new season of its funny and highly informative show – Science of Stupid, hosted by Maniesh Paul, will explain to viewers the science behind misadventures of people – from motorbike crashes and trampoline mishaps to unexpected explosions and novice lumberjacking. The idea is to bring science in an interesting, quirky and easy to understand manner. The forthcoming show will take its viewers a step closer to all the scientific facts hidden in common and not-so-common experiences, and decode the science behind everyday activities.
Science of Stupid, which was launched back in 2014, is a popular series designed especially for younger audiences. It strives to make complex principles of science fun and easy to comprehend. With a new and exciting set of videos, Maniesh Paul will be seen guiding viewers through viral videos, offering them a crash course in everything from gravitational potential energy to an optimum trajectory with the assistance of custom-made animations and super slow motion cinematography. By revealing the scientific theories at play behind the peoples’ misguided adventurers, the show promises to be an extremely entertaining and educating treat for viewers.
Speaking of the new season, Maniesh Paul said, “I am thrilled to bring to viewers yet another series of Science of Stupid. I obviously promise you a lot of jokes and laughter. But also a heavy dose of fun science theories and concepts. Thoda aur smart banoge yeh show dekh kar.”
“I believe each season of the show comes with more excitement and context, making it bigger and better than the previous one. The show has received much appreciation from its viewers and a brand new season is a reiteration of its popularity,” he added.
Science of Stupid will premiere on National Geographic on February 18 and will air every Monday to Friday at 7:30 pm. The series will be available on Hotstar as well.
