#103 Quel est ce lieu ? Where are you ?


Un décor de cinéma ? Un isoloir dans un asile de fous ? Pas du tout. Vous êtes dans la pièce du silence de l’Université technique du Danemark. En 1967, l’ESA avait besoin d’un environnement sans bruit extérieur, sans ondes et sans micro-ondes pour mettre au point les antennes extérieures. C’est ainsi qu’ils ont crée la chambre de silence DTU à Copenhague. Et ce sont ces picots étranges qui permettent cette isolation phonique maximum. Bizarre autant qu’efficace.

A movie set ? A isolation chamber in an insane asylum? Not at all. You are in the chamber of silence of the Technical University of Denmark. In 1967, ESA needed a research environment without any external noise, including waves and microwave to develop outdoor antennas. Thus they created the chamber of silence, also called DTU, in Copenhagen. And it is apparently the strange spikes that allow the maximum soundproofing. As bizarre as effective.
