Great course. Awesome Prof. Easy to understand and get into even if you don't have a science background. Can't wait to learn more!
Easy to follow. Anyone who is interested in Astronomy should take this course. This course is better than the course (Astronomy - Big Questions) that I took at my University.
I like this course very much. Special about this course was the Mr. Adam Frank, his skills of teaching are one of the best in the world. Thank you for this.
A really nice course for someone pursuing astronomy or likes to know more about the cosmos. Really expands one's knowledge of the universe.
