Physics 101/105

Introduction to Astronomy

What is our place in the universe? This course provides an introduction to the sciences of astronomy and cosmology. We will study a wide range of texts written by ancient thinkers such as Aristotle and Ptolemy, reformation-era thinkers such as Copernicus and Kepler, and modern thinkers such as Hubble, Einstein and Lemaitre.

If you are not currently enrolled in this course, you are still welcome to sit in on any of my lecture sections. Or you can check out one of my online videos (to be posted shortly). I look forward to our time together this semester studying some of the most significant and insightful works on physics that have been written!
