We will discuss it in depth in our first class, September 28th in PAA 214 from 1:30pm - 2:50pm. 

Quick Notes: 

 I've created a #ASTR 541-497-ISM-2022 channel for this class in the UW Astronomy Slack Workspace:  uw-astronomy.slack.com  

I'll cross-post Canvas announcements to the Slack space for maximum visibility. In addition, I'll check both Canvas and Slack regularly for questions about content/course logistics. You can  always email me too: jwerk@uw.edu 

Videos (and associated readings) will be posted in Pages! Problems and Quizzes will be accessible as assignments.
