Summary This is the first course of a series of four courses about astrophysics offered by the Australien National University. In nine topics you will hear about the biggest unsolved mysteries of our universe. The two lecturer presents these topics in short videos and explain the actual theories and possible explanations to the topics. Of course in astrophysics there are more than nine open questions. So the most important ones are selected and presented in a very enjoyable, interesting and easy to understand way.

So if you are interested in this topic I can recommend the course. I already registered for the next of the four courses and if this one is done in the same manner I will maybe participate at the whole series of the four courses.
