The first class of my course “Planets, Stars, Black Holes, and Cosmology” (link), offered through SFU Continuing Studies, occurred today. It was a pleasure to see so many new and returning faces! Welcome to all.
The topic this week was Early Cosmology: The Big Bang. The class description:
The nature of the universe and our place in it has fascinated humanity throughout history. We will focus on how our understanding of the universe changed by examining key developments in the history of cosmology from a physics perspective. The Big Bang theory will form a touchstone for our discussions.
