Street-Fighting Physics!â€‹

**Week 3 01-05 February**

**Week 3 01-05 February**

**(1) Pages 26 - 34 **

**Scale of the Universe**

**This lecture gets us into the topic of "Lookback time," and is covered in Chapter 2 in the text. **

**There will be a graded homework assignment in "Launchpad" that goes with this.**

**After completing the above lecture, the video below should be more relevant. Note the distances cited on the left-hand side of the screen and how they are expressed in terms of light speed and "look-back time." Most of the images you will see are actual photos with very little CGI, except at the very end.**

**(2) Required viewing**

**History**

**The following topics are also covered in Chapter 2 in the text. If we are to understand our current concept of the Universe, it's essential to know how we got here. **

**Yeah, history IS important!**
