Web sites for AST 102-like courses

Actually, there aren't very many courses like our AST 102. We have opted for "depth rather than breadth" in designing Rochester's AST 102, 104, 105 and 106. The only two I know about are Mitch Begelman's Astronomy 2030 at the University of Colorado, taught by Mitch Begelman or Rosalba Perna, and Niel Brandt's Astronomy 130 course, at Penn State University. Please tell me of any others you find.

Most universities offer astronomy courses for non-science majors that consist of one-semester surveys of all of astrophysics, i.e. "breadth rather than depth." Here are a couple of particularly well-done courses of that latter sort:

There's also another Rochester AST 102 site: that by  Frank Wolfs, which he built last time he taught the course (Fall 2005). It's nice too, and not identical to this one; you may find useful items there that aren't here.

Many pictures of Albert Einstein can be found at http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~jr/physpiceinstein.html  .

Our principal textbook, Kip Thorne's Black holes and time warps: Einstein's outrageous legacy, has its own little Web site, maintained by the book's publisher. Prof. Kip Thorne's home page is http://astro.caltech.edu/people/bluebook/thorne.html .
