Summary I have chosen this course because I know things like dark matter, neutrinos, dark energy and anti-matter only from science fiction TV series. Furthermore I wanted to know more about issues like the Higgs Boson and the evolution of the universe. This course gave me a lot of answers to my questions. Of course, this short four week course does not go into the detail of each topic. Therefore I have had a lot of open questions at the end of the course and I’m looking forward to find a more advanced course to learn more about our universe.

To get a certificate you have to do the weekly quizzes. These quizzes are very fair because they contain a mandatory part, needed for grading, and a very challenging optional part.
