Beginning with an in-depth exploration of our own Milky Way galaxy, we will discuss the largest scales in the universe: galaxy clusters and beyond. Finally, we will explore the universe as a whole - from its birth in the Big Bang up to current theories on how it might meet its end. What experimental evidence do we have for these theories? What pieces of the puzzle are missing? This is an introductory course, so no prior maths or physics experience is needed.
