I approached this course with great interest and high expectations and I was totally satisfied. Prof. Murayama chosed a very nice path to show and bring together all the key elements of the evolving Universe. Slowly andf effectively the couse covers many key questions without the need of an advanced physics knowledge. The subjects are "complicated" but I've found Prof. Murayama always very clear and that he also covered the new frontiers of studies.If you want to know more about the origins of the Universe, its key elements and evolution this is course that I really recomended.

This was both a detailed and an interesting course, outlining the greatest news stories of the last hundred years and showing what is to come. Professor Murayama made the information digestible and fun to learn, in short 5-15 minute snippets of information. The information developed the understanding of the universe and its many wonders with graphs, videos, photos and equations, targeted at all people from A-level (end of Sixth form/High School) and beyond. Only a small amount of astronomical and mathematical knowledge required to complete this comprehensive course.

The course was indeed very much useful yet informative, especially to those who happen to be very curious about knowing as well as understanding the universe and many of its yet unfolded secrets. thanks for giving the privilege of making myself know more about the origins of the universe and showing me some of absolutely magnificent facts about the big bang, dark energy, our solar system and much more. this course would surely remain of my favorites, and i hope i'll keep on learning further in order to be upgrade my knowledge regarding this subject. thank you!

I am really thankful to the University of Tokyo for helping me with financial aid to pursue this online course. I was indeed a very interesting course which was properly designed and organized in an effective way. The concepts discussed by Prof. Murayama were easily understandable and increased our perception and knowledge of the universe to a great extent. The practice questions provided at the end of each module involved critical thinking and sharpened my analytical and problem solving techniques. It was a very useful course for my career and education.

Excellent introductory course on various topics including the expansion of space, dark matter, dark energy, how the Universe was created and much more. Professor Murayama used a very clever approach to teach this course. By introducing the student to basic concepts ellipses and gravity, and gradually progressing to more difficult topics such as Higgs-Boson and anti-matter, the course was fun and easy to follow and understand. After completing this course, I now have a very good understanding of how the Universe was created.

This course is amazing. I have come to understand mostly all of the things that I had wondered about and I can now envision the inner mechanisms of the universe in my head. Obviously there is so much more to learn but I do think this course will give you what you need to strat things off. I want to give special props to Mr. Murayama for his exceptional skills as a teacher. I think it is quite remarkable how he manages to explain the greatest discoveries on the field while conveying how genius and important they were.

very good course, although the very beginning is very basic. exceeded expectations. I would have liked it to have the video transcripts, as i like to have another source for learning and understanding the contents. i liked the professor and his attitude. i think some things are left kind of unanswered or implicit, which for someone who is not directly involved with the subject confuse me. maybe Q&A sessions with the professor would also be a good idea besides the recommended transcripts. overall it was very good

Great course! I am a high school student with minimal knowledge of mathmatics, physics, and astronomy. The professor was able to clearly explain all of the topics, so that even someone like me could understand. My only criticism is that some of the graded quizes (although you recieve many attempts) are very unfair, and do not refer to the content of the lectures. Additionally, some fairly complex math is often required for these quizes. Otherwise, this course is great for anyone who is interested in astronomy.

This course helped me a lot understanding the origin of universe and thought me that there is a lot to understand about the nature of universe.It gave me a lot of insight on the cosmological backgroud emmision,WIMPs,Higgs boson and a lot more.My knowledge about the universe and the methodology about the study of universe has been far increased with the help of this course.
I personally feel a little more mathematics would be more helpful.I would like to thank the coursera team for this wonderful work.

The course is for a novice. There are some mathematical treatments which need understanding of physics and mathematics of 12th standard in India. But they are in small parts and can very well be skipped.
I would advise any curious person who wants to know what's going on in the frontiers of physics esp cosmology to take this course.
I would love to see a Hindi translated version of this course or some similar course which will be very beneficial for Indians with little or no expertise in English.

Aprendí mucho sobre el Universo, cómo funciona, de qué esta hecho, cómo eso influye en nosotros y en nuestra vida diaria. Fue un curso en el que disfruté cada una de las lecciones, incluso me da un poco de tristeza haberlo terminado porque quería seguir aprendiendo. Pero agradezco mucho la labor de Coursera y la labor del profesor Murayama, que incluso hasta con momentos de gracia, pone su amplio conocimiento al servicio de muchas personas alrededor del mundo. Nuevamente muchas gracias !

hello Everyone, I totally rate this course A1, I have and still am enjoying it. Looking forward to the extra videos Professor Hitoshi Murayama has added. Thank you. I have learnt so much. The course has underpinned and drawn together alot of stuff I have learned/picked up in the past from reading and You Tiube videos. Once again thank you. By the way this is my fifth short free Coursera course. I always buy the certificates though, as momentos of a good time. Bye Eila

Simply Amazing. I am still surprised at how efficiently the course has been wrapped up within a short and effective time span of four weeks. I love reading about Astronomy and Universe in general and out of all the stuff I've come across till date, this course gave me a lot more than previous sources. The Professor explained concepts in simple and clear language, the quizzes were excellent and the matter was precise, besides covering a lot of topics quite effectively.

A fascinating course. The teacher is amazing. Some lectures are a bit difficult, but that's exciting. The Quizs are super difficult (at least for me -I come from Philosophy and Music) but that's challenging and exciting too. You can repeat the Quizzes as many times as you want, so, don't worry, at the end you pass and learn a lot. A super interesting course about the origins of the Universe, dark matter, anti-matter, energy, stars, planets, and life. Thanks a lot!

I have a learning disability in Maths, but absolutely LOVE quantum and astro physics and am very excited to be alive in a time where we are approaching greater understanding of the 'life' and mechanics of our universe. I feel like we're so close to understanding Blackhole/Whitehole entropy between our 'mirror' universe(s), scaled/planked right back to plasma particles, getting closer to a cohesive String Theorum. Very exciting course, indeed! ♥

It was the best course I have ever come across about universe. The course is divided into four lectures of increasing complexity. It begins with every day phenomena like day and nights, seasons and takes you to solar system, galaxies, stars, particle accelerators, Higgs boson, dark matter, dark energy to big bang and inflation theory.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is curious to know about origin and possible fate of our universe.

An exciting adventure through the most recent discoveries in the worlds of astronomy, astrophysics and related sciences. Without requiring any mathematics or physics skills, the course is useful for amateurs like myself trying to understand the fundamental questions and possible answers about the origin of our universe, its laws and structure as well as its fate. It is a pleasure to follow professor Murayama clarify these wonderful subjects.

Its a brilliant course for those interested in learning more about past, present and future of our universe, and in the process learn more about fascinating topics like dark matter and dark energy.
It has been structured quite well to correspond the actual life of universe and the use of adequate mathematical tools and physics formulas, makes this an ideal course for amateur cosmologists wanting to know more about where we come from.

This was one of the best courses I have taken on Coursera. The professor was articulate, the material was organized, and the graphics were clear and helpful. I completed all the quizzes and completed the course. I do not want a certificate as I am well past the employment phase of my life. I enjoy the courses to help keep my brain's neurons connected. I would enjoy any other courses that Prof. Marayama teaches.

I recommend this course for any novice like myself. Professor Maruyama presents a well structured course in a precise, informative and sometimes humorous way that makes the course thoroughly enjoyable. Calculus and physics! Don't fear them as Professor Maruyama offers clear explanations and demonstrations of the related concepts. If you want to gain an insight in to this field, try this course! You will enjoy it.

I absolutely loved this course from beginning to end. The course itself is incredibly interesting, jam packed with some of the most awe-inspiring discoveries scientists have made but I couldn't have been more impressed by the style of teaching. Professor Murayama is very engaging, enthusing the listener with his clear passion and insight into the projects he personally worked on, related to the course.

Prof. Hitoshi Murayama has Scienced the course out of dark matter! Amazing introductory course for young aspiring minds. Professor has taken a cosmic ride through the greatest minds of our history. It is structured beautifully like an atom, into four lectures, each more thought provocative than the latter. Can be completely understood by anyone with curiosity and high school knowledge of basic science.

I have taken lots of online courses. But this is the best course I have taken in my life. Professor Murayama discussed the most complex topics of astrophysics in a very simple way so that everyone can understand. After taking this course I have decided to make a research career in the fascinating world of Cosmology. Thank you Coursera and thank you Professor Hitoshi Murayama for this course.
