This introduction to astrobiology outlines the ongoing studies concerning life in the Universe. You'll learn about what it is that makes the Earth suitable for life, uncover the difficulties astronomers encounter when looking for these conditions elsewhere in the Universe, and take a brief look into our search for intelligent life.
Is our planet the only place in the Universe with life? Or is it everywhere in the Universe just waiting to be found? Explore the possibilities in this six week adult course for beginners taught by an engaging tutor from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
Note:- This course will be run online via a Zoom webinar session.
The course runs twice in the 2020/21 academic year.
