This is a great class. I am in it now and I highly recommend it to anybody. Professor West does a great job of conveying the information in a fun and creative way.

The class is not bogged down by too much math which allows students to appreciate the concepts for what they are instead of worrying too much about deriving mathematical answers.

We were fortunate enough to see the class change as we go though the course since planets are constantly being found.

Once again it is a great course for Non AS majors and I would recommend it to anybody who has ever had an interest in outer space.
