Why is the Sky Blue?...and Other Awesome Physics Questions
When most people hear “physics”, they often think of cutting edge physics, like the discovery of gravity waves or the Higgs boson. But then the answers to ‘simple’ questions like “why is the sky blue?”, “how far away is the Sun?” or “what’s at the center of the Earth?” are just taken for granted. In this 9-week course, we combine physics, history, and our everyday physical intuition to explore the trials and tribulations of scientists from centuries ago as they set out on their journey to answer these and other awesome questions in physics.
