Disturbing function. Class work is done predominantly at night. Alien worlds orbiting other stars were the subject of speculation going back to ancient times, and were first detected in the s. Today, thousands of extrasolar planets are known and show a remarkable diversity compared to our own solar system. This introductory astronomy course for non-science majors discusses the known exoplanets: how they are discovered, their orbits, physical properties, formation, evolution and fate.
Physical principles will be used to evaluate the dangers involved. The universe is full of deep mysteries that astronomers are far from understanding. This course is designed to help students understand the limitations of our knowledge, and why finding solutions to these mysteries is so difficult. A number of though provoking topics will be covered, including: the beginning and end of the universe, black holes, extraterrestrial life, dark matter, and dark energy.
From ancient Babylon to modern cosmology, nearly every culture on Earth has stories and myths of creation. It is a universal human desire to understand where we came. In this introductory astronomy class for non-science majors, students will explore the origins of the Universe, structure and galaxies, stars, planets and life.
The course will use the content to illustrate the nature of science and scientific inquiry. Black holes are stellar remnants that are so dense that nothing, not even light, can escape their gravitational pull.
In this introductory course, aimed primarily at non-science majors, students will learn the key concepts of the theory of relativity, explore the nature of black holes, and study their astrophysical importance. We will also discuss how astronomers' views of black holes evolved from broad skepticism to wide acceptance in the face of mounting observational evidence for their existence. A seminar designed primarily for first and second year students, taught on a voluntary basis by a faculty member. Topics vary. Astronomy faculty members will describe various research projects.
The goal is to acquaint students with the both the subject matter and the required physical, mathematical, and computational background of contemporary astronomy research. Potential long term undergraduate research projects will be emphasized. A thorough discussion of the basic concepts and methods of solar system, stellar, galactic, and extragalactic astronomy with emphasis on physical interpretation.
Recent research developments such as black holes, pulsars, quasars, and new solar system observations from the space program. A laboratory course dealing with basic observational techniques in astronomy. Classes generally meet at night.
An introduction to the tools, techniques, and science of radio astronomy. Discussion includes fundamentals of measuring radio signals, radiometers, antennas, and interferometers, supplemented by illustrative labs; radio emission mechanisms and simple radiative transfer; radio emission from the Sun and planets, stars, galactic and extragalactic sources, and the cosmic microwave background. A seminar-style class offered primarily for non-majors planning to teach science or looking to improve their ability to communicate science effectively.
Each chapter ends with a useful survey of relevant texts and papers as well as an interesting collection of problems. The book is a major achievement that should attract a wide readership. Burns, I. It addresses the fundamental characteristics of the solar system from a physicist's perspective, showing the diverse ways in which physics governs what is observed in, on, and among the planets. It is both encyclopaedic in its coverage and up-to-date in including the most recent advances in understanding and current issues of study.
The authors have succeeded in compromising broadness with depth, and clarity with completeness.
This second edition is very up-to-date on all hot topics of modern research. This book is therefore particularly recommendable to students and researchers that seek a multidisciplinary approach to Solar System science. I wish I had it when I was a student myself. Physics of the Sun is tightly written, fun to read and should appeal to experts in the field and new graduate students alike. Within its covers abound a wealth of interesting and little-know nuggets of planetary lore that, although available in the scientific literature, have not appeared in an accessible text before.
