On-Line Courses in Cosmology and Astrophysics

worldscienceu

A new set of on-line university courses are now available at “WWW.WORLDSCIENCEU.COM“. These are comprehensive Master Classes given by world famous scientists that may be taken at your own speed. The current classes which may be played at any time are “Special Relativity” by Prof. Brian Greene and “Inflation” by Prof. Alan Guth. Although the classes are university level, they are quite understandable to anyone with at least a high school education who is interested in astronomy. These classes come in versions with or without advanced mathematics and completion of any module set earns a certificate of completion. World Science U plans classes on general relativity, gravitation, astrophysics, etc., etc.

Super Science Mashup! 10/28/14, Ivywild

supersciencemashup

Are hauntings and ghost sightings as prevalent as The Science Channel says? From Gozer the Traveler to Ghost Hunters International, the media is gonzo for the paranormal in October. But what does science say about the techniques employed by professional ghost hunters?

Join us for an evening about science in pop culture with a special Halloween edition SUPER SCIENCE MASHUP. The science crew will do live demonstrations of Ghost Hunting technology and techniques, will show how to take your own “paranormal” photographs, and will put the science of paranormal investigation to the test. The event will also be a costume contest with a cash bar.

After the event, the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society will be setting up telescopes outside for viewings.

Admission to Super Science Mashup is free.

IvyWild School is located at:
1604 S Cascade Avenue
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80905

Doors open at 6:30pm and the event starts at 7 on Tuesday, October 28th 2014. A live webcast of the event will also be streaming at Super Science Mashup online.

Super Science Mashup is presented by the Pikes Peak Skeptics Society, Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, and Ivywild.
