AbstractFascinated observers have always grappled with questions concerning the physical origin, workings, and behavior of the universe. Trace the historic path of discovery and exploration through reading scientist-authored essays, online interaction, streaming video, and web resources. Changing understandings of motion, time, space, matter, and energy will be pursued through the ideas of the ancient Greek philosophers, Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. Discuss how the future might reframe these big concepts and constructs. Offered in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History.
