“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another. - Plato

The introductory course in astronomy explains how physical laws prescribe natural processes in the universe. It includes discussions on the motion, composition and evolution of the planets, stars and interstellar matter, and examines the structure and evolution of the universe using the Big Bang theory. Some lab is an integral part of this course.
