Time is relative, Albert Einstein once observed. How it goes by is a matter of perspective. In general, when having fun, hours go by like minutes. Especially when we’re under duress, though, minutes can seem like hours.

So to help make time go faster in our current circumstances, the wise recommend we do something we love. Prof. Robert J. Nemiroff, a Professor of Physics at Michigan Technological University, suggests the noble and ancient study of Astronomy. His introductory course is offered online, with video lectures and information resources, accessible for free.

Dr. Robert J. Nemiroff and Dr. Jerry T. Bonnell are co-creators of Astronomy Picture of the Day, produced in collaboration with NASA. One example is found in the amazing photo of the Milky Way’s nucleus above, a detail from an APOD image that combines light from across the electromagnetic spectrum, entitled, The Galactic Center from Radio to X-rayImage Credit: X-Ray: NASA, CXC, UMass, D.
