Osher Class Announced: From the Moon to the Edge of the Visible Universe — an Astronomy Sampler

This series is offered through Vanderbilt’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which serves learners over age 50.

Description: Ever wonder how the Moon formed or, for that matter, the Universe? What have we discovered about Pluto from the recent New Horizons mission flyby of the icy world? Through a series of six lectures, students will learn about these and other topics from Vanderbilt University astronomers. No prior knowledge of astronomy is necessary. When you walk away from this course you will have a greater appreciation of the night sky.
