Firstly, I would like to thank the UA for offering this eye-opening course about the final frontier. Secondly to Prof. Impey, who spent weeks or even months compiling all the videos, slides and notes that went into this Astronomy course - it was well worth it. A big thank you to the moderator, Christy Read, for the continued support and advice that she patiently and unselfishly provided to all who partook in this course.

I honestly enjoyed the Astronomy course and it provided me with new insight into our enigmatic, yet mesmerizing and fascinating universe. I would definitely sign up / enroll for similar courses in the future. LIVE LONG & PROSPER!

This course has a deep impact on my vantage point about the obvious things that I have always taken for granted without considering the possibility of a scientific basis behind them. It helped me understand the fundamentals not only in astronomy but also real-life day-to-day things and I am so glad to write about historical viewpoints and beliefs that this course has provided me.

I am so impressed by the work of Professor Chris Impey and his team. You people have made it possible such an organized course for all the students(especially who are not from astronomy background).

Looking forward to be a part of any other similar course in the future.

This course provides excellent introductory material in the field of astronomy. Dr. Impey is an effective and witty instructor who obviously cares about communicating complex ideas to a general audience. The material is logically laid out, beginning with astronomical history and progressing through the earth-moon system, the solar system, galaxy, and universe. If there was one criticism, it's that the material is getting a little dated. Several of the "future" experiments and observations have already been done, so it would be nice to have an update in these areas. Overall, a highly recommended course for those with a basic science background.

This course has been a wonderful and very informative experience. Aimed at novices like me, it manages to explain very complicated stuff in easily understood ways. I guess Prof Impey is a fan of Carl Sagan and is carrying on his proud tradition of making difficult science more accessible to people who don't have the necessary training. However, I would advise future learners to spend as much time as possible researching the Teach Astronomy website which is an invaluable source for material directly connected to the course. You will find it much easier to tackle the assignments if you do. Can't wait for them to offer other courses like this!

I've chosen four courses on coursera and this course "Astronomy: Exploring Time and Space" was my favorite! I loved everything - video lectures and readings were very interesting and informative, tests and assignments were very helpful to absorb knowledge. I could never regret taking this course as I always dreamed to study physics and I was interested in astronomy since my childhood. I am truly grateful to professor Chris Impey and coursera for having this amazing experience which, hopefully, will encourage me to change my profession in future. And of course, I highly recommend this course to everyone who's interested in astronomy!

I was enthusiastic about this course in which I participated only for personal interest in astronomy without having curriculum or career purposes. I have discovered many interesting new things and above all I am now encouraged to continue to deepen the topics that most interested me.

I am sincerely admired by the vastness of prof. Impey is the naturalness with which he exposes even the most complex concepts.

Sincere congratulations! And many compliments and thanks also to the mentor Christy Read for the kindness and competence with which we have followed our work in these weeks

Many thanks to all the staff !!

This was my first Coursera class, and my first science class since college (many years ago). I loved it and and sorry it is over. Professor Chris Impey is a very skilled teacher, and the instructional platform is excellent. No technical challenges whatsoever— and such interesting use of multi-media! But most of all, I loved the subject matter, learned so much (including much science), and am left with a great sense of wonder about the privilege of life we enjoy in this vast, expanding universe. The course was skillfully planned and flawlessly executed. Thank you to all who made this opportunity possible.

Chris Impey eases into the subject of astronomy, with increasingly difficult subject matter as the course proceeds. However, he is very methodical and plain (in a good way) in his language, and his videos are a joy to watch. I started this course already interested in amateur astronomy and learned a lot of new things about the technology and methodology in astronomy. I'd recommend this to anyone who is really interested in astronomy. Be prepared to make a not insignificant commitment, because the course is nearly four months long! Time well spent in my opinion. Thank you to all who made this course possible.

As a beginner at astronomy this course exceeded my expectations for an introduction to the subject. I appreciated the fact that Dr. Impay did not talk down to the students and pushed us to undertsand the many concepts presented. Some of the topics about navigation and exobiology were unexpected, but enlightening. I always wondered what a practicing astronomer dealt with and now I feel I have a much better idea. I am nnot now an astronomer nor am I likely to ever be one, but I now have a better understanding of their language, tools, and their research. A very fine course. I highly reccommend it.

I have taken 5 or 6 online courses through Coursera and this have proven to be the most interesting of the lot. I enjoyed the professor's delivery style and all the topics that were covered. I had little knowledge of Astronomy before taking the course and now feel I have a much better insight into outer space. Great job Professor Impey and those that assisted. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in gaining a broader knowledge in science. You do not need to have any previous knowledge of Astronomy to be successful in this course and to gain knowledge from this great course.

Very good course. Had a good experience. very happy that I have completed the course. Thanks respectful Mr. Chris Imprey. His teaching made this course interesting. The materials provided were so useful to complete this course. I have learnt many things from this couse. This course not only gives information about astronomy. But also about different branches of Astronomy. Thanks for this valuable and worthy course. The point it is free is so good that anybody who are interested in astronomy can learn this course. I would recommend this course to my friends and neighbours. Thanks once again !

This course was so good and very interesting. I am a beginner in science and Astronomy and I found the course lay out easy to follow. It was challenging but not beyond me. I learnt alot and I would like to do this course again because I feel that I could learn even more and go over some of the salient points again. I am also keen to do another Astronomy course by Chris Impey and his team and have found Astrobiology and so this is my next move. Thankyou so much to Chris Impey and to all of those involved in bringing the course to me the student. I am very grateful. Thankyou once again. Oriel

I have nothing but positive thoughts for this course. Astronomy is a challenging topic and I went into the course with no major knowledge apart from what you can usually watch on TV or read on an occasional article, but the material is presented in a logical sequence and explained in clear ideas that help to grasp the topic. The Professor's delivery is excellent and very natural; as he is an absolute expert, he can explain complicated concepts in simpler terms.

This course is great for someone who has great curiosity for the field of astronomy and wants to take a little extra step into it.

I loved the course. Professor Impey is very thorough, and I especially appreciated the readings, to firm up my background--even though they were very time consuming. Hopefully I'll still have access so I can go back and go through the ones I just eyeballed quickly for lack of time. I know that lecture material in the course needs to be updated, and will be. However, I keep up to date with what's going on in astronomy because of belonging to an astronomy society and for a few years, wrote for their the fact that some of this was outdated was not an issue with me.

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed this course, in fact I'm sorry that it is over ! Thankyou, Dr Impey, for your truly excellent presentations. As an educator myself, I appreciate your style, and use of supplementary material wherever necessary. The course is so well constructed, so that I feel that I have learned a great deal, and a real interest has been awakened, so that I will continue to explore and discover as far as I possibly can. Thankyou so much, it has been an absolute pleasure to follow this course, and I recommend it to anyone who has the chance to do it.

This course is a must for everyone interested in astronomy with very little to no prior knowledge. The instructor has huge experience in education and is clearly very familiar with the most common misconceptions people have. To me it was a fascinating journey from Earth, through our Solar system, to the most distant quasars. It also follows the Copernican revolution from the Heliocentric system, to Multiverse and Simulation theory.

Quizzes are not that hard, but there are some assignments to write. Some videos you might want to watch couple of times to fully understand them.

I have an affection for space material and this astronomy course makes me fall in love with the realms beyond, all the more. The thought of many quizzes and essays did scare me initially, but it helps the student/learner to recap on the information presented. Professor Chris Impey is great at teaching/sharing and I would readily watch these again. Unfortunately the live Q&A (?) sessions are not suitable for my timing so I've not attended those before. I hope that more people will discover the wonder of the universe with this course and a greater appreciation for the stars.

An excellent course for astronomy enthusiasts or for people trying to learn something new, this course has excellent teaching material. Prof. Chris Impey clearly explains all most everything from the big bang to the future of our universe, the rich history of astronomy and the basics of quantum physics (only enough to understand the course material). Professor also adds a personal touch to the course and makes it more interesting by using pop culture references or showing videos. The only downside is that the quizzes are not very hard, either way I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I cannot believe how much I learned from this course. I was thinking it was going to more of a course about our planets and where they are located in the sky. I didn't even realize until after I signed up that it was 11 weeks long. Many other courses were 6 weeks. Firstly, professor Impey is by far the best professor I have ever listened to. He talked about stuff that was way over my head and made me understand it by the time he was done. The course material is very indepth at no time did I feel like it was too much for me to understand. Thank you for that. Excellent.

This comprehensive look at current astronomical theories and information is a wonderful way to introduce oneself to the subject. Years ago I took an "Astronomy for Non-majors" (also at UofA, but in person), and as I recall, that course dealt with really a fraction of what is taught here. I'm thrilled to have this information and plan to continue with other courses on this and other subjects. Thanks to everyone who planned and presented this course, with a special shout-out, of course, to Prof. Impey. Excellent teacher with a great attitude toward his field of study.

Thank you for this excellent course Dr. Chris Impey and team! I'm a budding research scientist in the intersection of Astronomy and Computer Science. I didn't have the opportunity to pursue a formal course in Astronomy due to a lack of credits at my Univeristy. Although this course isn't mathematically detailed, I've gained a sufficiently broad view of the field, and it is more than I could ask for. The material is excellent, intellectually challenging, and humourous on multiple occasions. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in Astronomy!

Having just finished the course successfully, I would recommend it to anyone who loves astronomy. Coming from a different scientific field , but with a great love for astronomy, I feel that this course clarified a lot of meanings and introduced me to great concepts. And although English is not a native language, the course as well as all visualizations and material used, were very clear. Professor Impey is very well understood and does not use technical details that could confuse. Thanks Professor Impey and the Steward Observatory Teaching Team!

The astronomy course exceeded my expectations. I learned a great deal from the video lectures and the astrpoedia textbook. I was surprised that preparing for the essay questions was also a good source for added knowledge in researching for the assignments. I am indebted to Chris Impey for the excellent lectures and course. Everything was well presented and explained well but I could not get up to understand much of the last lesson – Life in the Universe.

In summary, great course and recommend it without reservations. Kudos and thanks to Chris Impey.

This has been a very elaborate and detailed course on Astronomy. I was pleasantly surprised with the absence of any detailed mathematical computations used to explain the scientific phenomenon. Dr Chris Impey is simply outstanding. His way of teaching is superb. He has the ability to express highly complex subjects in Astronomy in a very simple way. I never faced any problem in understanding them all due to his excellent teaching. I sincerely wish that more and more students across the world join this course. Wish the Team Astronomy the very best.

I was looking for an introductory course in astronomy. This course did not disappoint. It was informative and interesting throughout, and covers a wide variety of related topics, including physics and biology. The lecturer was very engaging, even with the limitation of the course being pre-recorded.

I am very satisfied with what I learned despite not completing all assignments - I was interested in an experience similar to The Great Courses. Assignments and quizzes were a secondary consideration to me.

All in all, I highly recommend this course.
