Physics 031 EARTH and SPACE SCIENCE - II • This course covers the space science topic areas of traditional astronomy and astrophysics, i.e. all E&SS topics except Earth science. • These include (moving outward from Earth) lunar science, solar science, planetary science, stars and the interstellar medium, galaxies, and cosmology. • This course is Part 2 of a set of two courses in Earth & Space Science, originally sponsored by a NASA Aerospace Workforce Development program (AWDP) grant, by way of the DC Space Grant Consortium. • For those who have not had the normal pre-requisite, Physics 030 (Earth and Space Science – I), but have had another similar course (such as General Astronomy, Physics 010 or 011) we have a supplementary hand-out, covering the topics in remote sensing, that are important pre-requisites for this course. • For those who have not had either Physics 030 or an introductory astronomy course, but have had two semesters of college-level physics, we can provide the following Physics 030 topics as hard-copy handouts: – The Size and Distance Scale of the Universe – Origins: How did it All Begin? – Orbits and Space Flight Physics 031 EARTH and SPACE SCIENCE - II Topics Covered I. The Moon and the Earth-Moon System II. The Sun and the Solar System Space Environment III. The Solar System 1. Major Planets and Satellites – – The Inner Planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars) The Outer Planets and the Kuiper Belt 2. Minor Members: Asteroids, Comets, and Meteoroids IV. The Interstellar Medium The Stars VI. Galaxies and The Universe V.
