The Winter 2013 quarter course of the Modern Physics series concentrates on cosmology, the science of the origin and development of the universe. Along the way, Professor Susskind takes a close look at the Big Bang, the geometry of space-time, inflationary cosmology, cosmic microwave background, dark matter, dark energy, the anthropic principle, and the string theory landscape. To appreciate the material covered in this course, students should understand basic calculus and algebra.

Miracles of the modern world

These lecture series are my favorite things in the world. I now have the secrets of the universe in my pocket. One day I'll be there for real but for now I can learn an incredible amount on my phone!

Last century thinking

More and more, through recent experiments that there is No dark matter, and the idea of dark energy is not supported by reality. (And not necessary).
The universe seems likely eternal and infinite.

GREAT lecture

Personally from listening to Dr. Susskind's lectures, i know for sure that this series is going to be great once i work my way up to comprehending the topic
