Editorial Reviews

It's a huge universe, and learning about it can seem like a huge task. Astronomy Part 1 can help. We'll meet some prominent ancient astronomers and discuss their theories of how the solar system works...or how they thought it worked! Then we'll take a look at Kepler's Laws, gravity, properties of light, the earth, the moon, and much more.

Special Features

None.

Format: VHS Tape
Standard Deviants always put out great videos. This one in particular is funny, sometimes a bit cheesy, but always easy to understand. Tape one of the astronomy review looks at the basics of astronomy including Newton's laws, Kepler's law, Wien's law, and a look at the earth and the moon. They also include funny stories about the history and people of astronomy. One particularly fun thing about the tape is that it is aimed at college students, and the humor is more adult then other "funny" educational tapes out there.

All children do not learn and retain information using the same skills. We have one whose ability through the power of vision increases ten fold. She is artistic, gifted and a natural right brained individual, so given that she was having trouble with some courses, we obtained this award-winning series, where she learns while having fun. The course uses humor to lighten up the experience. It provides an hour and a half of astronomy, teaching from the ancient Greeks through Newton. Powerful learning takes place. The observer learns the law of gravity, the properties of light, and how telescopes work. Would highly recommend acquiring this DVD if you want to help any child learn by using the power of vision.

I really like the Deviants' series of videos...and I am not an undergrad anymore. I found this by accident in a table-load of markdowns, and got hooked. This one is a good introduction to the subject, at a fast pace, with corny, witty humor. In fact, almost Monty Python humor. It will help me alot since knowing key facts is vital to credible writing. Who would believe a story with careless mistakes? Imagine Star Wars with travel in miles instead of light years...or no space suits for humans to wear so they don't freeze to death outside the ship - perhaps they hold their breath and put on lots of Vaseline jelly? (not) What happens to your spaceship if you don't account for gravitation, escape velocities, or the radiation of a supernova? You lose the sense of reality that makes a good story. Pull up a recliner, have some popcorn, and enjoy the show :-) it's painless learning. Really. It woulda helped me in class, had I HAD an astronomy class. Wish I knew about the series sooner.

I didn't quite know what to expect, but I am very pleased. Each section has it's own "quiz", which I enjoyed. You will learn from this DVD!
