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. (video sottotitolato in italiano) – Prof. Janna Levin speaks at TED conference. Physics and Astronomy Prof. Janna Levin spoke about the “soundtrack” of the universe at the TED 2011 conference in Long Beach, Calif. “I want to convince you that the universe has a soundtrack, and that soundtrack is played on space itself,” she said. The Huffington Post and New York magazine noted Prof. Levin’s lecture, specifically, on the sound of black holes.Professor Levin’s research focuses on theories of the early universe, chaos, and black holes. She is also interested in the topology of the universe and the question of whether or not the universe is
infinite. Other research topics include the cosmology of extra dimensions and string cosmology. She is the author of a popular science book, How the Universe Got Its Spots: Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space. Prof. Janna Levin Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy.

Other research topics include the cosmology of extra dimensions and string cosmology. Professor Levin has conducted research at the Center for Particle Astrophysics (CfPA) at University of California, Berkeley, as well as the department of applied mathematics and theoretical physics, Cambridge University, U.K. While in England, she also had an appointment as the first scientist-in-residence at the Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing at Oxford, supported by an award from the National Endowment for Science, Technology, and Arts (NESTA). Professor Levin writes and publishes for both scientific and general audiences. Her novel, A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines, won the PEN/Bingham Fellowship for Writers, an award which “honors an exceptionally talented fiction writer whose debut work … represents distinguished literary achievement…” and the Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work. It was a runner-up for the PEN/Hemingway Award for “a distinguished book of first fiction.” She is also the author of a popular science book, How the Universe Got Its Spots: Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space.
