ASTR 1107 - Life in the Universe

3 hours
Life in the Universe is a survey course that explores the possibilities of life-intelligent or otherwise-in the universe. The course is interdisciplinary in nature and lies at the interfaces between astronomy, geology, earth sciences, chemistry and biology. It covers topics ranging from the formation of our solar system and the origin of life to the structure/origin/evolution of the universe, galaxies, stars and planets in the cold depths of space. We discuss the characteristics of extraterrestrial life and possible communication options with alien civilizations.
