ASTRON 22. The Unity of Science: From the Big Bang to the Brontosaurus and Beyond

Science is like a well-woven, ever-expanding fabric, designed to uncover Nature's secrets. This course emphasizes the strong connections between subfields of science,showing it as the never-ending and greatest detective story ever told, with evidence always the arbiter. These characteristics are exhibited in the semi-historical treatment of three main themes: unveiling the universe, the earth and its fossils, and the story of life.
