Course Description

IN PERSON: This lecture-based course will cover the general ideas behind the Big Bang and the expansion of the universe. The course will attempt to present the physics of the universe as accurately as possible, keeping jargon and mathematics to a minimum. Some historical background on the discovery that the universe “began” about 13.8 billion years ago will be presented. Then, the course will follow the evolution of the universe to the present time. The discoveries made in cosmology in the last half century or so are among the greatest intellectual achievements in all of history. Students will gain a reasonable grasp of these majestic ideas without the complicated mathematics necessary for a full understanding. | Lecture + Q&A.
