Classes for the third session of the on-line course Gravity! start on Monday 30th January, for six weeks. You may register here on the FutureLearn platform. The course is free and registration is open to everyone.
The registrations to the French version of the course Gravité! have just reopened on the FUN platform.
This second session follows the same programme: it revisits the emergence of the main concepts from Galileo to Newton and Einstein before discussing some of the main aspects of gravity in the Universe -Big Bang, expansion and cosmic inflation, cosmic microwave background, dark matter and dark energy, black holes. And no doubt that gravitational waves will be centre stage on this course!
We ended registrations for the French version of the MoocGravité!From Big Bang in the Black Holes on May 18th with 5400 subscribers exactly (from 8 to 86 years, the most represented age brackets being from 20 to 45 years).
In the forum more than 800 discussions were opened!
And more than 55 % of those who filled the quiz of week 1 completed Gravité! successfully and will receive the certificate.
