I'm doing my Masters of Astronomy at Swinburne University. Remotely. Rather enjoyable so far.
Managed to get 78% in both subjects so far, just managing a distinction in both. Considering that was the best mark I ever managed at uni when I did my IT degree, I'm rather happy. Much more work than I thought, if I wasn't working during the last two weeks of the semester, I don't know how I would have managed. Next semester I plan on only doing one subject. One will be fine as a hobby, otherwise all I was doing was work and uni.
Anyway, here's my first two projects. I really need to work on my academic writing within them. I can write bullshit, but I really need to formalise my writing style.
21/30 for Fermi.
My time dilating explanation is a little confusing. And my supervisor had a great point of humanity does do generational work - Gaudi's Sagrada Família for example. I should have remembered that, I've been there.
25/30 for Life in the Solar System.
I'm missing some explanations on what is life - specifically in regards to viruses, why fire is not life, prions. And my explanation of the MHZ could be extended.
On how life started on Earth, I'm missing talking about stromatolites and fossils.
Anyway, enjoy, and swear at my writing style. Lana did, and I was too stubborn to change it all.
