Galaxies and Cosmology
This Oregon State University e-course begins by examining our own galaxy, the Milky Way.
We then look at galaxies in general, discerning between different kinds of galaxies and
discussing their formation and evolution, and the role that dark matter plays.
We go on to consider the universe as a whole. We will look at the current state of the mapping
of the universe and its large scale structure. We will then look at its creation and evolution, and
finish by considering extrasolar life.
