Using publicly available data from NASA of actual satellite observations of astronomical x-ray sources, we explore some of the mysteries of the cosmos, including neutron stars, black holes, quasars and supernovae.
This course is interesting. The professor is very enthusiastic about his field. IMHOit isn't for beginners in astronomy....way too much math. The course is 6 weeks and with the material covered it should be 10 to 12 weeks. I lasted 3 weeks and gave it up when I saw the 3rd week quiz/homework. I couldn't answer a single question without hours of research...at age 74, life is too short to be stressed out.
