We are just finishing up the Winter term here at Drexel. This term, I’ve been teaching an advanced undergraduate/graduate course in cosmology. One of my undergraduate students, Mary Chessey, wanted to do an additional honors elective. She developed a series of hysterically funny, pedagogical, and accurate cartoons to illustrate some core concepts in cosmology. Check it out:

If you use these diagrams, be sure to credit Mary. She did a wonderful job.
