An Age of Wonder in Astronomy
The first great age of wonder arose in large part out of the emergence of the telescope and the microscope, both of which allowed mankind to observe things that had never been seen before and to see familiar things in new ways. Today, the deployment of space-based instruments and the use of new ways of sampling the universe around us have opened a new age of wonder. We are seeing the unseen and seeing old things in new and unfamiliar ways. This course will discuss recent discoveries and developments in selected, on-going programs of NASA and other agencies. We’ll attempt to place those discoveries and developments in the context of emerging views of our universe.
Charles Hamilton has been an amateur astronomer for many years. He is an avid follower of astronomical discoveries. This course proceeds out of a long-standing interest in astronomy and the history of science. He is a retired attorney.
Nothing is required other than curiosity about the subject matter.
