Description: A descriptive survey of our understanding of the universe. Topics include the stars, planets, galaxies and the universe as a whole. This course examines the ideas covering the birth, life and death of stars, planetary formation and environments, and also the ideas about the creation, structure and possible futures of the universe. This is a non-laboratory course for non-science majors. Students who wish to learn to identify the stars and constellations or those who require a laboratory science course should enroll in AS 103  .
