This is the biggest story of all, how men and women discovered the origins of the universe, how they have studied its character, and how they have come to predict its future. Topics include the nature of scientific discovery, religion and cosmology, conflicts between theory and observation, horror and science fiction as adjuncts to science, cosmology and art, the dispute over the discovery of the expanding universe, and the implications of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. It's a very human story.
Evaluation will be through examinations and class participation.

I shall lecture, encourage class discussion, use PowerPoint presentations to provide images, and seek to respond to questions. Class readings will come from historical documents and studies; most will be on CTools. The total cost for books will be less than $50.00.
