Soundtrack of the Universe

Remember Janna Levin? She’s the astrophysicist and writer who talked to Kurt last year about that crazy psychedelic Swiss particle accelerator called the Large Hadron Collider.

When she’s not teaching classes at Columbia University or writing science-inspired historical fiction, she’s listening to the sweet sounds of black holes (and no, that’s not a new band from Brooklyn). Apparently, black holes in space make sounds, and she’s giving a lecture on the discovery called “Songs from Space: Black Holes and the Big Bang in Audio” on Tuesday June 23rd at Columbia. It’s part of Amaldi 8, a conference dedicated to exploring big ideas and big experiments in science on the horizon. The event is free and open to the public, and it’s sure to bring new meaning to the term “space rock.”

i find it so fascinating that the universe is creative--that it appeals not only to the discovery of systems and formulas, but also to the chaotic, the lovely, and the emotional.
