Astro 4

Black Holes and Cosmic Catastrophes

Spring 2017


Introduction

We experience the effects of gravity in our everyday lives. This important force shapes our Sun and its evolution, along with all stars and their exotic end-states, galaxies, and the universe itself. In Astronomy 4, we study the effects of gravity and other competing forces on the nature of stars, black holes, galaxies, and the universe as a whole, including an introduction to special and general relativity.
