How are astronomers approaching their search for life in the universe? What have we learned from the surge of exoplanets discoveries? How likely is it that Earth does not host the only life in the Universe? In this course we explore the field of astrobiology, an emerging multidisciplinary field. Progress in astrobiology is driven by telescopes on the ground and in space, and by new insights on how life emerged on Earth and its diversity. The topics in this course range from the science of how exoplanets are detected, to the chemistry that supports the argument that the ingredients for life are common in the Universe.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ASTROBIOLOGY: EXPLORING OTHER WORLDS
Excellent course by Prof.Chris Impey. If you want a deeper overall understanding of Astronomy, I would recommend the other course by the same professor.
You can get much more than the basics and yet you will still understand everything is said even without prior knowledge in any scientific domain.
This course has been an amazing experience. Although I would have loved to have classes just to get to know everyone and the professor, it was an insightful course that I would do all over again!
I really enjoyed the course. For me it was the right combination of real life information and data that pushed your thinking and thought processes without making it too difficult to grasp.
