ASTR 160 - Frontiers and Controversies in Astrophysics
ASTR 160: Frontiers and Controversies in Astrophysics (Spring 2007, Open Yale Courses). Instructor: Professor Charles Bailyn. This course focuses on three particularly interesting areas of astronomy that are
advancing very rapidly: Extra-Solar Planets, Black Holes, and Dark Energy. Particular attention is paid to current projects that promise to improve our understanding significantly over the next few years.
The course explores not just what is known, but what is currently not known, and how astronomers are going about trying to find out.
