This course teaches you to understand how the universe is strongly related to the scientific methods and not only the big bang and black holes but also evolution and other scientific theories.

The evidence we observe in the field of astronomy is remote since it is not a lab science. We cannot control the experiment in a lab but just rather gather information which is diverse, extraordinary and extremely logical.

Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
