Astronomy HyperText Book

Astronomy HyperText Book

This is an extensive collection of university-level courses, course supplements, and presentations concerning physics, with an emphasis on the subdiscipline of astronomy. Complete online courses are entitled Cosmology and the Origin of Life, Solar System Geology, Alternative Energies Class, and Physics (for Scientists and Engineers). These courses generally have the format of a course overview, a listing of external Internet resources, lecture notes, and various handouts such as audio files, animations, quizzes, tests and homework. There are other supplementary resources which are generally focused on a single topic, such as stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis in stars, and most have animated visuals and related assignments. There is also a section for 'Examples of Talks Using Mosaic/Netscape as Presentation Media'. The structure of this last section is an outline format with images and brief notes on discussion topics.
