Gravity rules the universe. Without it, everything would dissolve into a gas of randomly interacting atoms. Yet gravity is one of the least understood forces in nature. Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime introduces you to key ideas in gravity research over the past 400 years. It's an awe-inspiring journey led by a prominent theoretical physicist.

Things are generally well explained & often demonstrated, but be warned - it relies heavily on algebra & trig. If you struggled in high school, be prepared to be lost a lot of the time when it goes into pure math mode. In fact, the professor recommends brushing up on your math 1st.
It's a lengthy course - 24 hour-long lectures.
