planning ahead for next summer?
Check back in January, when we'll post updated information and the general course listings for 2018. If you join our email list, we'll contact you when the information is live.
This course discusses what we understand of the universe, guided by those who have shaped our understanding. We use as a springboard each week one or more key papers by Einstein, Penrose, Hawking, Guth, and others, and discuss the main ideas in them. All the background information needed to understand these ideas is provided in detail.
