The objective of the various pathways, or courses, is to provide students with the fundamental descriptions that constitute the field and science of radiation astronomy. At the end of their choices of paths, the course, a student should have a well-rounded knowledge of astronomy, radiation astronomy, and observational and theoretical radiation astronomy, each as they apply to the occurrences of radiation on, within or from above the Earth.

These courses are built upon the ongoing research performed by radiation astronomers around the world and in the not so empty space above the Earth's atmosphere.

Prerequisites[edit | edit source]

Although a working knowledge of calculus and physics is beneficial, most concepts presented require only an understanding of algebra. Additional learning resources are also provided through the courses to increase a student's background knowledge.

Completion levels[edit | edit source]

Each learning resource is dynamic. Some lectures change and expand maximizing at just over 100 kB. Others may be lists of resources.
