Origins: Stars, Planets, and Life

AST 324 Spring 1998

The following schedule is what I plan to do; it is possible that it will slip. There is no text for this part of the class. Homework is due at the beginning of class on the day it is assigned. The TA and I will be happy to help you with the homework during office hours. If the scheduled office hours are not possible for you, we will make appointments for other times.
