"What is our place in the universe? A question that has perplexed mankind since time immemorial and one that still isn't completely solved, owing to the vastness and complexity of it.
This course is designed to get you started on the path to answer this question by arming you with the basic skills and knowledge related to astronomy. It's a wild ride from the humble origins of astronomy from the days of yore (think ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt) to the discovery of quasars, pulsars, dark matter and dark energy.
Hop on board to find easily digestible, concentrated doses of universe on the go, which make the best use of the time being invested and also serve to impart skills that not only help in gaining a foothold in the field of astronomy and space science but also in inculcating scientific temperament. Prepare to see theoretical concepts leap out from the books and documents in the form of practical demonstrations."
