This course runs from January 22, 2015 to May 14, 2015 on W from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
This course studies celestial cycles, timekeeping, astronomical instruments, methods and limitations. Collecting and interpreting astronomical data accompanies a historic investigation of the solar system, exo-planets, 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.
