PHY301 Astronomy II

The main focus of the course is on complex concepts from extra-solar astrophysics (astronomy outside of our solar system), including star formation, stellar evolution, supernova and stellar remnants, black holes, galaxy formation, dark matter, the large-scale structure of the universe, and the Creation of the universe. The purpose of this course is to provide a broad baseline of conceptual understanding. Student will also learn how to analyze and understand new discoveries in astronomy as they are related directly to the professional astronomical community, in addition to understanding astronomy articles that are presented through more mainstream media. Prerequisites: PHY113, 201, or 214. (3 units; Spring, odd years)

PHY301L Astronomy II Lab

This laboratory course focuses on studying the laws of physics related to astronomy. It is intended as an upper division general education course in astronomy. The purpose of this course is to give a broad experiential understanding of the process of analyzing data from telescopes, integrating real astronomical data with astronomical concepts such as the expansion of the universe and supernova explosion. Additional lab fee. Pre- or Co- Requisite: PHY 301. (1 unit; Spring, odd years)
