As a part of Science Fridays, we're going to be taking the online course Astro 101: Black Holes, offered by the University of Alberta on Coursera. Together, we’ll explore the concepts behind black holes, learn the basic ideas of astronomy, relativity, and quantum physics. If you liked the movie Interstellar (2014), you will certainly enjoy this course.
Previously, we studied History of Science from Hank Green and Dinosaur Paleobiology from University of Alberta. Now we look towards the sky... for answers! For the duration of the Cohort, we will be meeting every Friday for an hour long friendly Zoom session.
This is part of an ongoing series where we meet every Friday to talk about science. This eclectic group consists of knowledgeable learners from around the world who have done hundreds of courses. So, you don’t just learn from the course but from other learners as well.
