    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There's massive appeal in knowing what constitutes the vast stretches of our universe, in that respect, this course is great.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how the universe came to be and about the intricacies behind studying the cosmos. A highlight for me was towards the end of the semester where we discussed life in our galaxy. A theory Dr. Pinsky lectured was that we might be alone only because we might be the first advanced multi-cellular organisms to develop in this galaxy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just know that the material being lectured in class is the exact same that's found in the powerpoint presentations. Dr. Pinsky just elaborates and adds his own flare to it. There's quizzes spread out through the semester, in my case, I only took 7. But if you're absent the day of, you won't be there for the quiz which will result in a zero. The homeworks are weekly, and they're challenging, be prepared to really put some time into doing these. There's 3 exams, straightforward.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely take this class. It is very interesting, you learn a lot, and has comprehendable information especially for a person who just needs it as a core science credit (me).

    Course highlights:

    You get to learn SO much about what is currently going on in space. There is so much that NASA is doing that we may be ignorant to and this class, especiallythe professor, sheds so much light and being enjoyment to the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open. Don't be intimidated based off the first lecture.
