Kursinhalt

##

From the basics of astronomy to the science behind the birth of a star, this course will change the way you see the night sky. Starting with Orion’s famous nebula, where new stars and planets are formed, you’ll take a look at the seven brightest stars that make up this constellation using high-quality images from telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope. You’ll find out about exoplanets, which may hold the secrets to life outside of the solar system, the galaxy Milky Way, of which our solar system is but one small part, and the history of the universe from the Big Bang to the present.
