Noi pensiamo allo spazio come a un luogo silenzioso. Ma la fisica Janna Levin dice che l'universo ha una colonna sonora — una composizione sonica che registra alcuni dei più interessanti eventi del cosmo. (Buchi neri, per esempio, che risuonano nello spazio temporale come un tamburo.) Una passeggiata sonora accessibile e psichedelica attraverso l'universo.

Janna Levin is a professor of physics and astronomy at Barnard, where she studies the early universe, chaos, and black holes. She's the author of “How the Universe Got Its Spots" and the novel “A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines.” Full bio
