Comment 1 by Rtambree :

At the rate (or lack of) that science is advancing lately, these lectures could remain current for decades.

I am just 15 minutes in and it is already outdated. The estimate of # of stars he puts up as 100 billion and we now know it is closer to twice that number.

I am not sure why you seem to imply science is advancing slowly now. If you are reading stuff more than a couple of years old, you are reading science history. Science is progressing faster and faster.
