TOP REVIEWS FROM THE EVOLVING UNIVERSE
This course finally mitigated my immense interest about Universe. I really liked the content and evaluative process of this course. Thanks to Caltech for this amazing astronomy course.
a novel perspective on the subject by a master of the subject -- the course itself needs more attention though; transcripts are messy and tests have typos
Brilliantly compiled course content and is one of the best ways to build a foundation in astronomy and astrophysics for all those interested out there
An outstandingly thorough tour of the evolution of the universe ! Specifically for space enthusiasts, a single course can cover so much aspects of the universe ! Incredible !
