Cours recommandes par la Societe Haitienne d'Astronomie. via Coursera et en anglais

Cours recommandes par la Societe Haitienne d'Astronomie.

Ces cours rentrent dans le cadre de la nouvelle politique dynamique de la SHA pour encourager les jeunes HAitiens particulierement a se former en astronomie, Des cours en langue francais e vont suivre tres bientot. A noter qu'un cours en astrophysique de l"universite Aix-Marseille est en cours d'execution (FUN_MOOC.FR) et des sympathisants de l'associations y participe deja via les info de notre reseau social (Whatsapp: "Astronomie en Haiti-SHA" +50938407775)

Rejoignez nous GRATUITEMENT! Devenez Membres Actifs! LA seule exigence est de se former en astronomie!                        


A Brief History of Human Spaceflight
University of Houston System
Starts Dec 25, 2017
About this course: This course provides a view of the history of spaceflight, from early writings telling of human's fascination of space through the early Russian and American space stations. Developed as an interesting and entertaining slice of space history that is accessible to anyone with an interest in human spaceflight

Analyzing the Universe
Rutgers the State University of New Jersey
Starts Jan 01, 2018
Analyzing the Universe
About this course: Using publicly available data from NASA of actual satellite observations of astronomical x-ray sources, we explore some of the mysteries of the cosmos, including neutron stars, black holes, quasars and supernovae. We will analyze energy spectra and time series data to understand how these incredible objects work. We utilize an imaging tool called DS9 to explore the amazing diversity of astronomical observations that have made x-ray astronomy one of the most active and exciting fields of scientific investigation in the past 50 years. Each week we will explore a different facet of x-ray astronomy. Beginning with an introduction to the nature of image formation, we then move on to examples of how our imaging program, DS9, can aid our understanding of real satellite data. You will using the actual data that scientists use when doing their work. Nothing is "canned". You will be able to appreciate the excitement that astronomers felt when they made their important discoveries concerning periodic binary x-ray sources, supernovae and their remnants, and extragalactic sources that have shaped our understanding of cosmology.

Imagining Other Earths
Princeton University
Starts Dec 25, 2017
Imagining Other Earths
About this course: Are we alone? This course introduces core concepts in astronomy, biology, and planetary science that enable the student to speculate scientifically about this profound question and invent their own solar systems.

Understanding Einstein: The Special Theory of Relativity
Stanford University
Starts Jan 08, 2018
Understanding Einstein: The Special Theory of Relativity
About this course: In this course we will seek to “understand Einstein,” especially focusing on the special theory of relativity that Albert Einstein, as a twenty-six year old patent clerk, introduced in his “miracle year” of 1905. Our goal will be to go behind the myth-making and beyond the popularized presentations of relativity in order to gain a deeper understanding of both Einstein the person and the concepts, predictions, and strange paradoxes of his theory. Some of the questions we will address include: How did Einstein come up with his ideas? What was the nature of his genius? What is the meaning of relativity? What’s “special” about the special theory of relativity? Why did the theory initially seem to be dead on arrival? What does it mean to say that time is the “fourth dimension”? Can time actually run more slowly for one person than another, and the size of things change depending on their velocity? Is time travel possible, and if so, how? Why can’t things travel faster than the speed of light? Is it possible to travel to the center of the galaxy and return in one lifetime? Is there any evidence that definitively confirms the theory, or is it mainly speculation? Why didn’t Einstein win the Nobel Prize for the theory of relativity?

Mechanics: Motion, Forces, Energy and Gravity, from Particles to Planets
UNSW Australia (The University of New South Wales)
Starts Jan 15, 2018
Mechanics: Motion, Forces, Energy and Gravity, from Particles to Planets
About this course: Most of the phenomena in the world around you are, at the fundamental level, based on physics, and much of physics is based on mechanics. Mechanics begins by quantifying motion, and then explaining it in terms of forces, energy and momentum. This allows us to analyse the operation of many familiar phenomena around us, but also the mechanics of planets, stars and galaxies.

Particle Physics: an Introduction
University of Geneva
Starts Jan 08, 2018
Particle Physics: an Introduction
About this course: This course introduces you to subatomic physics, i.e. the physics of nuclei and particles.

More specifically, the following questions are addressed:
- What are the concepts of particle physics and how are they implemented?
- What are the properties of atomic nuclei and how can one use them?
- How does one accelerate and detect particles and measure their properties?
- What does one learn from particle reactions at high energies and particle decays?
- How do electromagnetic interactions work and how can one use them?
- How do strong interactions work and why are they difficult to understand?
- How do weak interactions work and why are they so special?
- What is the mass of objects at the subatomic level and how does the Higgs boson intervene?
- How does one search for new phenomena beyond the known ones?
- What can one learn from particle physics concerning astrophysics and the Universe as a whole?

The course is structured in eight modules. Following the first one which introduces our subject, the modules 2 (nuclear physics)
and 3 (accelerators and detectors) are rather self contained and can be studied separately. The modules 4 to 6 go into more depth about matter and forces as described by the standard model of particle physics. Module 7 deals with our ways to search for new phenomena. And the last module introduces you to two mysterious components of the Universe, namely Dark Matter and Dark Energy.

Philosophy and the Sciences: Introduction to the Philosophy of Physical Sciences
The University of Edinburgh
Starts Dec 25, 2017
Philosophy and the Sciences: Introduction to the Philosophy of Physical Sciences
About this course: What is the origin of our universe? What are dark matter and dark energy?

This is the first part of the course 'Philosophy and the Sciences', dedicated to Philosophy of the Physical Sciences. Scientific research across the physical sciences has raised pressing questions for philosophers. The goal of this course is to introduce you to some of the main areas and topics at the key juncture between philosophy and the physical sciences.
Each week we will introduce you to some of these important questions at the forefront of scientific research.

 We will explain the science behind each topic in a simple, non-technical way, while also addressing the philosophical and conceptual questions arising from it.  We’ll consider questions about the origin and evolution of our universe, the nature of dark energy and dark matter and the role of anthropic reasoning in the explanation of our universe.
