CQX 001: Solar System Science
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at 7:00 PM - Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 8:00 PM (PDT)
Instructor: Ray Sanders (@DearAstronomer) with support from Pamela L. Gay
Enrollment: 8 students max (minimum 5 students needed)
Location: Online, using Google Hangouts on Air for a fully interactive experience
In this 8-session, 4-week course, we'll be exploring our modern understanding of the solar system, planetary geology, and extrasolar planets. Learn about how solar systems form and how astronomers use all colors of light to study currently forming solar systems. Study the different types of planets, and how we currently define planets (and how maybe that definition should change). Explore all the ways that we are moving beyond our solar system and starting to explore planets orbitting alien stars.
