This is an amazing class that I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in astronomy and would like to go beyond the basic general knowledge level. Mike Brown is an excellent instructor, and he and the occasional guest lecturers are experts currently working on the topics they talk about, which is pretty exciting. Instead of trying to give a general overview of everything about solar system science, Mike Brown has decided to focus on a few topics and go into significant depth on each of them, though I found myself learning a lot of general information as well. I rated the difficulty "Hard" because for the average student with only a general science background, this class will require a lot of thinking, note-taking, and reviewing. I took astronomy and physics classes in college (long ago) and still found this class challenging. But I view that as a good thing and feel a real sense of accomplishment as we near the end of the course.
