PHYS 130 Astronomy: Stars and Galaxies


This is the second semester of a two-part astronomy course, though each can be taken independently. First, it reviews how light is used to study the properties and life cycles of stars. Next, it delves into intergalactic space to survey our own Milky Way and billions of other galaxies. The course ends by examining the evolution of the Universe from the Big Bang to today. All along, it will explore how the mysteries of Black holes, dark matter and dark energy are critical to our current understating of the cosmos.
