Things are generally well explained & often demonstrated, but be warned - it relies heavily on algebra & trig. If you struggled in high school, be prepared to be lost a lot of the time when it goes into pure math mode. In fact, the professor recommends brushing up on your math 1st.
It's a lengthy course - 24 hour-long lectures.

A complete history of gravity, from its first explanation to more modern theories as well as things which are still unknown.
