About This Class

Astronomy for Everyone: Size & Scale of the Universe is an exciting program about the universe from the very small to the very large that begins with an overview of the cosmos and all it contains, and culminates in the production of a cosmic quilt block using free tools provided by NASA.  Images of celestial objects in space taken through robotic telescopes requested by you are sent to your email inbox for processing much like professional astronomers do.
