Well, It’s About Time – Part I

Well, It’s About Time – Part I
6 sessions, 12 hours

It may come as a surprise, but “time” is the most frequently used word in the English language. From music (“Time is on My Side”- Rolling Stones); to literature (“It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times” – Charles Dickens) to sports (“Time Out” ) to television (“Real Time with Bill Maher”…), you get the idea. But what is time really? Although we experience it, use it, and depend on it, we really never consider exactly what it is. This course explores the true nature of time from several viewpoints; from the Scientific, to the Cosmological, to the Human experience and point of view, time is as pervasive in our lives as breathing.

Instructor: ILR’s space cowboy, Robert (Bob) Rubock, MS, has taught physics, astronomy and engineering at FCC. An engineer by profession, he holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic and a MS from University of Connecticut. Bob has been fascinated by astronomy and physics since childhood and was inspired by the first photos from the Hubble Telescope. In Bob’s words: “I love this stuff!”
