Adult education courses in Astronomy, Einstein's Relativity and Quantum Physics. Held online and presented by Dr Paul Payne, with over 30 years teaching experience, using unique dynamic graphics. Complex concepts are made understandable through powerful visualisations. The courses take you from an introduction to the night sky to delving into the wonderful universe described by modern physics. The courses are free of mathematics except for " The Theorem of Pythagoras in Physics" and "HSC Relativity" .

## Exploring the Heavens

## Astronomical Concepts

## Understanding Relativity

## Understanding Quantum

## The Theorem of Pythagoras in Physics

^{2}+ b

^{2}= c

^{2}

It appears everywhere in physics. It is applied in Newtonian mechanics, momentum, Einstein's Relativity, wave theory, the probability of states in quantum mechanics and much more. Over 5 evenings we explore the many ways to interprete this ancient, simple theorem and explore how it gives us profound insights into universe.

## HSC Relativity

- the two axioms of Relativity, time dilation, lose of simultaneity and length contraction.
- mass, momentum and energy

cost: $15 per student per session ( teacher free )

## Astro-Update

## James Web Space Telescopes Images

*Introduction to the Presentation*

The latest James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) image released to the media seemed to be everywhere. It is stunning in its beauty and the amount of information it contains. Called the Pillars of Creation, we were impressed back in 1995 when the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) first imaged it, revealing details never seen before. However with Webbs infrared capability the dark columns have been revealed as light, colourful, billowing pillars surrounded by a rich population of stars.

In this Astro-Update we look at how the JWST is revealing so much more than the remarkable HST. It is principally to do with the infrared capability of JWST, its larger aperture and the nature of the universe. With the Pillars of Creation it specifically has a lot to do with how light is transported through a cloud of gas and the interstellar medium. It is the same physics that explains why the sky is blue during the day and beautiful sunsets.

Join me as we explore some wonderful images, and fascinating astrophysics.
