About Us

Astronomy 162, Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe, is part 2 of a2-quarter introductory Astronomy for non-science majors taught at TheOhio State University. This podcast presents lecture audio fromProfessor Richard Pogge's Winter Quarter 2006 class. All of thelectures were recorded live in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the OSU MainCampus in Columbus, Ohio.

Lectures 1-4: An Explanation

Where are Lectures 1-4? This is a good question, and one I've gotten from many listeners. Here's the answer. Recorded 2006 Nov 27 on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Welcome to Astronomy 162

Lecture 44: Life, the Universe, and Everything (Life Part II)

How can we search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and what are we looking for? This second part of a 2-part lecture picks up where we left off yesterday by examining SETI, the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence, and reviews what we might look for and how. We will use this as a point of departure to then briefly review where we have come and what we have learned in Astronomy 162, bringing this course to a close for Winter Quarter 2006. Recorded 2006 Mar 10 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 44: Life, the Universe, and Everything (Life Part II)

Lecture 43: Life in the Universe, Part I

Are we alone in the Universe? This is the first part of a 2-part lecture that will explore the question of life and the Universe. We will look at the conditions needed for life, and address the question of how often we expect those conditions to be satisfied in our own Galaxy. In this part, we introduce the Drake Equation and make some basic estimates. To be honest, it was supposed to be one lecture, but I ran over time and ran into the bell. Oops! Very embarrasing. Tomorrow's lecture will finish up our discussion of life in the Universe, and then wrap up Astronomy 162 for the quarter. Recorded 2006 March 9 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 42: Time Travel

Can we travel through time? This is not a frivilous, science-fiction kind of question. Certain restricted kinds of time travel are in fact allowed by classical General Relativity. This lectures takes up this question, and looks at some of the surprising answers that have been found. Recorded 2006 March 8 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 42: Time Travel

Lecture 41: Dark Matter & Dark Energy

We are not made of the same matter as most of the Universe! This surprising conclusion, that the ordinary matter we are made of (protons, neutrons, and electrons) constitute only 13% or so of the total matter in the Universe, the rest being in the form of Dark Matter. Further, this dark matter is only about 30% of the combined matter and energy density of the Universe, the remaining 70% of which appears to be a form of Dark Energy that fills the vacuum of space and acts in the present day to accelerate the expansion of the Universe. This lecture will summarize the state of our understanding of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and look at the questions remaining to be answered in this active area of current research. Recorded 2006 March 7 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 41: Dark Matter & Dark Energy

Lecture 40: The Once and Future Sun

How will the Sun evolve? The Sun is now a middle-aged, low-mass, Main Sequence star in a state of hydrostatic and thermal equilibrium that has consumed about half of the Hydrogen available for fusion in its core. What will its subsequent evolution be as its core runs out of Hydrogen? This lecture describes our current state of understanding of the expected evolution of the Sun, informed by a combination of state-of-the-art solar models and stellar evolution codes, and data gathered from observations of nearby stars in our Galaxy. We will trace the future history of the Sun from the present until it begins its final phase as a fading White Dwarf some 8 Billion years in the future. Along the way, we'll also ask what will become of Earth. Recorded 2006 March 6 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 40: The Once and Future Sun

Lecture 39: The Fate of the Universe

What is the ultimate fate of the Universe? The ultimate fate of the Big Bang is either expansion to a maximum size followed by re-collapse (the Big Crunch) or eternal expansion into a cold, dark, disordered state (the Big Chill). Which of these is our future depends on the current density of matter and energy in the Universe, Omega0. This lecture examines our current knowledge of the matter and energy content of the Universe, which leads to the surprising discovery that we live in a Universe that is Flat (Omega0=1), Infinite, and Accelerating! We will end the lecture by exploring the possible fate of an infinite accelerating Universe. Recorded 2006 March 2 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

Lecture 38: The First Three Minutes

What was the Universe like from the earliest phases immediately after the Big Bang to the present day? This lecture reviews the physics of matter, and follows the evolution of the expanding Universe from the first instants after the Big Bang, when all 4 forces of nature were unified in a single grand-unified superforce until the emergence of the visible Universe we see around us today. Recorded 2006 March 1 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.
