A Phonar 14 taster …. for your ears.

“Stars do not just shine any old light; the spectrum of light frequencies they emit depends on the kind of stars they are, and the kind of elements they contain.”

Dr. Paul Stevenson, Physics dept. University of surrey

The wavelengths of light from many of the stars can be discovered. We also know the speed of light. From these two facts, we can know their frequencies, and frequencies are musical notes.  What an incredible thing, to be able to ‘hear’ the sounds of our universe. – Jill Jarman
