Customer Reviews

Informative without being boring

I really enjoyed the second semester course (Astronomy 162) which deals with the great big universe. I'm looking forward to learning about space a little closer to home. Professor Pogge does a great job of explaining very complicated subjects in a, dare I say it, down to Earth manner.

Expert Educator

In Astronomy 161 (solar system) and 162 (universe) Dr. Pogge masterfully synthesizes complex topics of astronomy and its foundational histyory, chemistry, physics, and related sciences. Engaging and addictive, he provides an outstanding continuing education experience. Great website lecture notes as support, as well. I'm hooked!
