Cosmology is one of the most active research frontiers of current scientific investigation. With the tremendous progress in the past few decades, scientists have gradually formed a clear and dynamic picture of our Universe. In this course, we will go through the brief history of our Universe, including its content and the expanding history. We will also identify and learn a few important events that happened in the Universe, for example, the Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN) and the Cosmological Microwave Background (CMB).
