    Lectures 1-4: An Explanation

    Lectures 1-4: An Explanation

    Where are Lectures 1-4? This is a good question, and one I've gotten
    from many listeners. Here's the answer. Recorded 2006 Nov 27 on the
    Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

    Welcome to Astronomy 162

    Welcome to Astronomy 162

    Welcome to the Astronomy 162 Lecture Podcasts! This is a brief message
    from me explaining the podcasts, and welcoming new and old listeners.
    Recorded 2006 Mar 10 on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State
    University.

    Lecture 44: Life, the Universe, and Everything (Life Part II)

    Lecture 44: Life, the Universe, and Everything (Life Part II)

    How can we search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and what are we
    looking for? This second part of a 2-part lecture picks up where we
    left off yesterday by examining SETI, the Search for ExtraTerrestrial
    Intelligence, and reviews what we might look for and how. We will use
    this as a point of departure to then briefly review where we have come
    and what we have learned in Astronomy 162, bringing this course to a
    close for Winter Quarter 2006. Recorded 2006 Mar 10 in 1008 Evans
    Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

    Lecture 43: Life in the Universe, Part I

    Lecture 43: Life in the Universe, Part I

    Are we alone in the Universe? This is the first part of a 2-part
    lecture that will explore the question of life and the Universe. We
    will look at the conditions needed for life, and address the question of
    how often we expect those conditions to be satisfied in our own Galaxy.
    In this part, we introduce the Drake Equation and make some basic
    estimates. To be honest, it was supposed to be one lecture, but I ran
    over time and ran into the bell. Oops! Very embarrasing. Tomorrow's
    lecture will finish up our discussion of life in the Universe, and then
    wrap up Astronomy 162 for the quarter. Recorded 2006 March 9 in 1008
    Evans Laboratory on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.

    Lecture 42: Time Travel

    Lecture 42: Time Travel

    Can we travel through time? This is not a frivilous, science-fiction
    kind of question. Certain restricted kinds of time travel are in fact
    allowed by classical General Relativity. This lectures takes up this
    question, and looks at some of the surprising answers that have been
    found. Recorded 2006 March 8 in 1008 Evans Laboratory on the Columbus
    campus of The Ohio State University.
