Sends a ping, in brief

Once upon a time, in a futuristic world, there was a massive spaceship that travelled across the galaxy. The crew of the ship was responsible for exploring new planets and making sure they were safe for humans to inhabit.

One day, while travelling through the vastness of space, the captain received a message from the nearest space station. The message read: “Please ping us with your location.”

The captain, being a savvy space explorer who spoke in abbreviations, replied with a message, “IMS.” The space station immediately recognised this as a signal to send a ping and get the location of the spaceship.

From that day forward, “IMS” became the official code for sending a ping in the captain’s space exploration crew. Whenever they needed to send a quick message to each other or ask for location updates, they simply said “IMS” and everyone knew what it meant.

As they continued their journey across the galaxy, they encountered many other space crews who were intrigued by their unique way of communicating. Soon, “IMS” became a popular slang term among space travellers and was used far and wide.

And so, the simple act of sending a ping became a crucial, yet quirky, part of space exploration – all thanks to the inventive mind of the captain and the crew of their trusty spaceship.
