ASTR 0001-001 | A Survey of the Universe | Mariangela Bernardi | DRLB A6 | TR 12:00 PM-1:29 PM | A general survey, designed for the non-major, of the facts and theories of the astronomical universe, from solar system, to stars, to galaxies and cosmology. Topics include planets, satellites, small objects in the solar system, and extraterrestrial life; stars, their evolution, and their final state as white dwarfs, neutron stars, or black holes; galaxies, quasars, large structures, background radiation, and big bang cosmology. Elementary algebra and geometry will be used. This course is not recommended for physical-science majors or engineering students. Engineering students receive no credit for this course. Fulfills quantitative data analysis requirement. | Physical World Sector Quantitative Data Analysis |

ASTR 0006-001 | The Solar System, Exoplanets, and Life | Cullen H Blake | DRLB A4 | TR 1:45 PM-3:14 PM | A survey course on planets and life covering our own Solar System and exoplanets orbiting other stars. Topics include the latest results and theories about: the origin and evolution of planetary systems around our Sun and other stars; the detection of exoplanets; the implications of planetary atmospheres for life; and the search for life on other planets in our Solar System. This course is designed for the non-major and elementary algebra and geometry will be used. Physical science majors and engineering students should prefer ASTR 1211 to this course. | Natural Sciences & Mathematics Sector Quantitative Data Analysis |

ASTR 1212-001 | Introduction to Astrophysics II | Ravi K Sheth | DRLB 2C8 | TR 8:30 AM-9:59 AM | A basic course for majors in physical sciences and engineering; require for the astrophysics concentration. The course covers fundamental knowledge of Einstein's gravity, the contents of the universe, and the structure and distribution of galaxies. Emphasis is on the key elements of modern cosmology: the mathematical model of the expanding universe, the cosmic microwave background, the early universe and the emergence of large-scale structure in the present universe. | Physical World Sector | |||||

PHYS 0016-001 | Energy, Oil, and Global Warming | Gary M Bernstein | DRLB 3N1H | TR 1:45 PM-3:14 PM | The developed world's dependence on fossil fuels for energy production has extremely undesirable economic, environmental, and political consequences, and is likely to be mankind's greatest challenge in the 21st century. We describe the physical principles of energy, its production and consumption, and environmental consequences, including the greenhouse effect. We will examine a number of alternative modes of energy generation - fossil fuels, biomass, wind, solar, hydro, and nuclear - and study the physical and technological aspects of each, and their societal, environmental and economic impacts over the construction and operational lifetimes. No previous study of physics is assumed. | Natural Sciences & Mathematics Sector | https://coursesintouch.apps.upenn.edu/cpr/jsp/fast.do?webService=syll&t=202310&c=PHYS0016001 | ||||
