LB07 The Universe and the Cell: An Amazing Look at EachRegister for Courses
September 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Can you recall a time on a clear, moonless night when you looked up to the heavens and witnessed a blanket of stars? In this course we are going to consider this awesome universe: the planets, stars, and galaxies. The launch of the Hubble and James Webb telescopes have given us views of the heavens that until now were impossible to see. Through photographs sent from these telescopes, we can view the beauty and majesty of the heavens.
We will also consider the smallest unit that can live on its own. This unit makes up all living organisms and the tissues of the body: the cell. Our human body is composed of trillions of cells. These cells take in nutrients from food, convert these nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions. We will look at the basic science of cells and the beautiful expanse of the heavens.
