ESC 112 - Introduction to Stellar Astronomy (SJC Long Island)


An introduction to the study of the universe beyond the solar system. The focus includes the role of electromagnetic radiation in discovering the tremendous distances to the stars, the classification and study of galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, white dwarfs, black holes, neutron stars, and pulsars. Theories such as the evolution of the universe, possibility of space travel, and potential for life elsewhere will be discussed. Evening observations, planetarium trips will enhance these theories.
