Explore Newton's law of gravity and unpack its universe of consequences.
Here we lay out Newton's law of gravity and crack open the universe of consequences that spring from it. On the journey we'll come to understand planetary phenomena like tides and atmospheres, the rich geometry of heavenly bodies and their motion, and the engineering considerations of space travel.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to code simulations to explore applied problems using
Python, derive pieces of general relativity, and understand where Newton’s law starts to buckle.
You’ll need an understanding of mathematics and physics at the level of Classical Mechanics.
