An Introduction to Galaxies and the Universe

Tuesday 14 April 2020, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

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.

So we can continue to support our students, we are working towards putting this course online, by setting up live seminars that students can join through Collaborate - a tool for online meetings that is similar to making video calls.

Students joining our online courses would need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone, and a reliable broadband connection. You can join the seminars using a smartphone, but this would make viewing any presentations difficult.


Please note: No class on 12th May - will replace with 23rd June.
