Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Professor Carroll is easy to understand with such a difficult subject and easy to listen to. Fascinating theories. I would watch other courses he would be lecturing.

I am not a physicist and this course was over my head, but I am interested in Time. Dr. Carroll is an excellent presenter and made a subject that could have been exceedingly tedious accessible to an Elementary Educator! Thanks!

Very interesting course, but it seems to me that gravity plays the role of the sticky side of the snooker table. Isn't a star lower entropy than the cloud of gas it came from ? Moreover, the consequences of special relativity and the breaking of simultaneity have not been fully explored (block universe). Nor was the link between the very existence of time and mass (massless particles do not experience time) and thus the Higgs mechanism...
