The I2A course was planned to run in 2017. However, due to other commitments of the presenter, the course will be adapted for online access in the form of either online html files or free, downloadable pdf files (or both) that closely follow the powerpoint presentations and discussions that would have been presented in the classroom. Apologies to those who were looking forward to the course. The plan is to develop these materials during 2017. Keep checking here for updates or contact Lesa to express your interest in the project. Topics will likely include:

  • Part 1 - Introduction and Terminology, Observing the Southern Sky, Earth-Sun-Moon, Solar System, Telescopes, Stellar Evolution.
  • Part 2 - The Electromagnetic Spectrum, Cosmology, Optics, Physics of Space Travel, Relativity, Astrobiology.
