Home / Astronomy Series

 

spaceEven though humans have studied the heavens for thousands of years, we still know very little about the universe.  As we continue to explore, we learn more about the stars, planets, and galaxies.  Some of the things we find out are amazing, and others are confusing.  In this course we will brush up against topics in both categories.  Join us for the first course in what promises to be an “out of this world” series that continues with Astronomy 2 in session 2.
