【Course Objectives】

The aim of this course is to understand the structure of the universe and its evolution, high-energy phenomena, black holes, planets (including the earth and moon) and small bodies in the solar system, and exoplanets, based on the latest research results.

【Course Contents】

This course is composed of 4 parts:
(1) Overview of phenomena in the planetary atmospheres based on the observations by planetary probes and ground-based telescopes and theories of planetary physics and chemistry. Introduction of polar sciences including fields other than physics. Principle and application of optical remote sensing for planetary observation.
(2) A supermassive black hole that resides in a galaxy, where it is believed to affect the star formation rate and the thermal history of inner galactic gas and to interact with the gas in a cluster of galaxies. Overview of a supermassive black hole, a cluster of galaxies, co-evolution of the galaxy and the black hole, and the latest X-ray observation technologies used for the space mission.
(3) Introduction of Hayabusa2, Martian Moon Exploration mission, and exoplanetary science
(4) Overview of various celestial objects from the large-scale structure to the solar system. Introduction of the formation and circulation of chemical elements in the universe.
