SC 166 - Astronomy
Course #: SC 166
This course studies celestial cycles, timekeeping, astronomical instruments, methods and limitations. Collecting and interpreting astronomical data accompanies a historic investigation of the solar system, exoplanets, life in the universe, stars’ origins, evolution and demise, galaxies and the universe: its structure, origin, and the forces that drive it. The accompanying field and laboratory work coordinates hands-on learning with concepts encountered in the classroom along with the economic, social, and political impact of the space age.
