A lecture of the Bydgoszcz Academy of Art.
Sebastian Soberski. Hidden colours and sounds of the Universe
If our eyes do not see something and our ears do not hear it, this does not mean that it doesn’t exist. Human eyes see only a small fragment of the electromagnetic spectrum. Contemporary astronomical telescopes extend this knowledge of the Universe to frequencies (colours) that are not seen by human eyes. You can also hear cosmic sounds by recording radio signals. During the lecture, the author will show selected astronomical objects observed in various ranges of electromagnetic spectrum. You will also be able to listen to the “whispers of the Universe.”
