A bit more than a year ago, while browsing the Stanford University online resources, I came across a series of lectures about cosmology; I thought some of you might be interested, so I decided to share it with you here. It is actually part of a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the theoretical foundations of modern physics. Sufficient knowledge (bachelor level) is required to be able to fully enjoy these lectures.

The course is given by Leonard Susskind, Felix Bloch Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stanford University. It consists of eight lectures, with a total duration of approximately 15 hours. The essential is covered, nicely explained and described: it will be perfect to refresh the basics, or for the curious ones who would like to learn something more. I encourage you to check out the other courses as well.

For those of you who don’t feel comfortable with youtube (or would like to spare the fans of their computer), the course is also available for free on iTunes U.
