Cosmology & Astronomy

Explore the mysteries of the unknown as the Center for Lifelong Learning hosts “Cosmology and Astronomy” with Dave Kobilka at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 7 at the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College. The word “cosmos” originates from the Greek word “kosmos,” meaning “order,” as in an orderly system. Cosmology, a sub-discipline of Astronomy, seeks to understand the origin, evolution, structure, and ultimate fate of the universe. As it goes with all science, for every question answered, many more new questions arise.
Kobilka teaches Earth Science and Astronomy at Central Lakes College, with past teaching credentials including Illinois Central College and Bradley University, both in Peoria, Illinois. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Geology from Bemidji State University and a Master of Science in Oceanography from Texas A&M University.
Cost to attend this session is $5 for non-members or free for those with a Center for Lifelong Learning membership. Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling Bev at 218-855-8118.
