Learn Through Videos: Astronomy
This is a collection of links to educational videos related to astronomy and cosmology, which are made for a general audience. What is out there? Where do we come from? How did the universe begin? What is a star made of? Are black holes real? Are we alone? Is there another Earth? What are dark matter and dark energy? From the birth of the universe, through the emergence of life in the universe, to dark matter and dark energy, there are numerous questions about the world above us. The videos listed in this collection consist of lectures and documentary films that help us better-understand the universe in an amusing way. They cover a variety of topics: Big Bang, Black Holes, extraterrestrial life, dark matter, dark energy, galaxies, mankind's space exploration, multiverse, planets, stars and stargazing, telescopes, and the lives and works of great astronomers.
