Earth Science 041 is the study of the very ground beneath your feet and what’s below that—all the way to the core. Your exploration of the Earth begins with the formation of the universe and how our glorious blue rock became the home we have today. You will dive into the nature of the stars and how they form the building blocks of our planet. From there you’ll journey through the development of our Earth and see how past events can help us understand our present. The forces that made the Earth impact our lives on a daily basis. This course is the first in a two-part series (EARTH 041 and EARTH 043).
