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
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.
As I am a teenager I found this course quite challenging however the easy to follow lectures and constant quizzing really helped me along the way.
I love this course. This is a great course. From this course, I got a deep knowledge of astrobiology. Now I am interested in advanced courses in this branch.
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.
