Semester Physics: Field Astronomy

Field Astronomy examines both the dynamics of planetary systems and the life and death of stars. The course will examine the history of the heliocentric and geocentric models of our solar system, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, Newton’s Law of universal gravitation and the theory behind solar system dynamics. Starting with our sun, the course will examine the formation of stars and their possible fates.
