S353: Astronomy: The Universe and its Quirks in Splash Spring 13 (Apr. 06, 2013)
You are sitting down on a bench, thinking about the stars in the sky. Are you moving? No, you are sitting still. But, isn't it true that the Earth is spinning? And that the Earth is orbiting around the Sun? And that our galaxy is constantly spiraling? While we sit, the universe moves. It is never asleep and violently alive. In the class, we will look and think about the implications of astronomy. Mainly, we will ask ourselves: why do we study the universe? Topics will cover some historical astronomy, star/galaxy formation, and a bit of 4th dimensional space-time.
