There’s an article about how their totally silent anechoic chamber will drive anyone crazy after 45 minutes. How silence drives people bonkers.
Except the relevant data (the only data mentioned) referred to being in this chamber in the dark. So is it silence? Or silence and darkness combined?
That’s a really big difference.
I’d expect that from pretty much any regular media, but the Smithsonian site? Really? Can anyone report science well?
