All pictures and diagrams in the powerpoint are from NASA (public domain) or are drawn by me.
In the notes section of the powerpoint, lecture information is included to explain the concepts and go into more detail than the powerpoint slides.
The powerpoint goes along with a set of outline notes that are 12 pages (answer key another 12 pages) and the powerpoint is 135 pages of notes and pictures. The set of notes are NOT included with this item, but can be bought separately from my store. Or you can look for the notes and powerpoint bundled together in my store for a slightly cheaper price.
The following notes are an outline of the material in the powerpoint:
