Impossibly distant, sparkling jewels cast on the black velvet cloth of the sky, no sight inspires more awe than the beauty of the stars. This course explores the evolution of our understanding of astronomy from how the Universe at large works to the modern view of our solar system.
Science also intersects with our daily lives in the weather. We discuss the way elementary physics causes everything from everyday weather to colossal storm systems, and we explore some major science issues including climate change.
Historically descriptive, with introductory basic physical concepts, this is a suitable course for all undergraduate students.
