An introduction to cosmology (short course)

While we have made massive progress in our understanding of the Universe, it leaves us with many unanswered questions. In his famous short course, Malcolm Fairbairn will try to explain how cosmologists try to answer these questions over the course of five, 90-minute sessions. The course level will be aimed at committed non-experts, and no particular level of mathematics will be assumed.
