Podcast: Listening to the Stars

This week on The Physics Central Podcast I'm talking to Lucianne Walkowicz, an astrophysicist and artist who turned data from the Kepler space telescope into sound. Just as images from space allow us to see the universe, sonifications allow us to listen to the stars. Walkowicz thinks this could provide access to the data for people with visual disabilities. Listen to the podcast to hear more about the science and the art.

You can find the sound clips featured in the podcast at Walkowicz's soundcloud page, and more information about her research and her art on her homepage.
