What you'll learn:
- How life may have arisen on Earth
- How we discover planets around other stars
- What makes a planet favorable for life
- How we search for life in our universe
(Learn about alien life, how we search for it, and what this teaches us about our place in the universe.)
I took the course last year, totally recommend it. You won't be alone as the professors encourage all students to discuss thoughts and theories with everyone,
easily done by creating a facebook group. My group had 800 members (although the course had thousands of members, we were all scattered across dozens of groups.)
edX also offers a whole lot of other interesting courses you might want to check out.
Seriously, give it a go!
