Space: Nobel Laureate Dr Robert Wilson

ep.05 Beatie Wolfe interviews Nobel Laureate Dr Robert Wilson about capturing the sound at the birth of our universe (Cosmic Microwave Background) via the Holmdel Horn Antenna and proving the validity of the "Big Bang" theory. Listen to this dublab radio show which takes you from sound to astronomy via the thread of curiosity.

Orange Juice for the Ears with “musical weirdo and visionary” (Vice) Beatie Wolfe explores the power of music across Space, Science, Art, Health, Film & Technology by talking to the leading luminaries in each field from Nobel Prize winners to multi-platinum producers and hearing the music that has most impacted them, their “Orange Juice for the Ears”. Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space (with Robert Wilson via the “Big Bang” Horn Antenna), been appointed a UN Women role model for innovation and held an acclaimed solo exhibition at the V&A Museum.
