About this course:

Due to advances in technology, what we thought we knew about the fundamentals of cosmology, astronomy and space exploration is evolving almost daily. In this course, we explore the latest concepts, news, and discoveries regarding multiverses, gravitational waves, black holes, neutron stars, exoplanets, and the beginning of our universe. We also follow the progress of NASA's and ESA's missions to the moon, Mars, and Europa--Jupiter's ice covered moon, and much more. Please note: students will be expected to read various news articles relating to these subjects that will be posted by the instructor on her Facebook page.
