COMP 002 : Planetary Science Lecture-Laboratory
The planetary science course involves studies of astronomy (planets, stars, the universe) and geology (the earth). In geology, the principal features of planet earth such as size, shape, composition, motions are presented. How planet earth changes as a result of internal and external forces acting on it provides a topic of interest. In astronomy, emphasis is on the other planets, the solar system and other celestial bodies that exist in the universe. Laboratory investigations involve the examination of various samples, planetarium visits and field trips to area geological sites and venues where technologically advanced telescopes can be used.
