"Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space"
with
JANNA LEVIN, astrophysicist
Tuesday, April 5, 2016
6:00 p.m.
Freeman Auditorium in the Woldenberg Art Center
Tulane University

Free and open to the public, with a book signing and reception to follow.

Janna Levin, an astrophysicist, Guggenheim Fellow, award-winning author, and professor of physics and astronomy at Columbia University, is changing the way we understand the cosmos and making cutting edge science accessible to anyone willing to expand their mind. Levin argues that insurmountable limits can inspire creative surges in science as well as art, and ignite moments of discovery that change us forever. In her talk, Levin will describe the struggle against limits that led to the scientific breakthrough of the century: the recording of the sound of spacetime ringing from a black hole collision 1.4 billion light-years away.
