From Atoms to Stars: How Physics Explains Our World (edX)
Explore the universe through physics from the smallest micro particle to the vastness of galaxies. In this physics course, you will learn about the structure and function of our universe, from the micro-world of quantum fields and atoms up to the mega-world of stars and galaxies. You will learn about the objective laws governing the physical world and about methods, provided mainly by physics, which allow us to obtain such knowledge.
