Echo Tube

Echo Tube

One of the most striking exhibits in Launchpad, the 35-metre-long echo tube is hard to miss. Stand at one end and shout into the tube, then listen as your voice bounces back.

Try opening and closing the shutters to see how it affects your echo. When the middle shutter is closed you're shouting into a tube half the length - can you tell the difference?
