The Solar System

ElderCollege Course

Our cosmic home, the Solar system, includes a star (the Sun), several orbiting "worlds" (the planets and moons), comets, rocks of varying sizes (asteroids and meteors), gas, dust, ices, as well as light, magnetism, ions, and other inhabitants; all in a grand cosmic gravitational dance. In this course we will attempt to understand and not merely catalogue all the amazing objects, processes and forces shaping the Solar system. Instructor: Joel Kositsky
