Astronomy 161, Spring 2005

This is the web page for Professor David Weinberg's section of Astronomy 161, Introduction to Solar System Astronomy, for Spring Quarter, 2005.

Some information on final exam topics

There are several topics from the last two lectures that will not be on the final exam because I ran through them too quickly. These are: the Oort Cloud, the Kuiper Belt, the gravitational microlensing method of searching for extra-solar planets, planet migration, and life in the universe.


All reading assignments are from Universe, by R. A. Freedman \& W. J. Kauffmann III, Seventh Edition.
