Coming soon: Exoplanets

Updated Tuesday 4th December 2018

This brand new free course will explore our Galaxy's population of planets, and some of their many great surprises.

What are the planets outside our Solar System like? Could there be life on them?

Learn about this fascinating area of twenty-first century science in this exciting free course, Exoplanets.

The course introduces our Galaxy's population of planets, and some of their many surprises. It explains the methods used by astronomers to study exoplanets, and provides a general introduction to the methods of scientific inquiry. The course culminates in discussion of life elsewhere in our galaxy.

Follow us on Twitter or Facebook and we will announce when the course goes live.
