title Planetary science and the search for life
description <div><p>This module tackles fundamental questions about our solar system. How did it form and how has it evolved? Why aren't all the planets like Earth? How and why did life arise on Earth? Has life arisen elsewhere in the Solar System or beyond, and could it be intelligent? You'll look at the exploration of the Solar System by spacecraft; planetary processes such as volcanism and impacts; the structure of planets and their atmospheres; and asteroids, comets and meteorites. You'll use web-based resources and electronic conferencing extensively. Although the module is intended for a wide range of people, a background in science is required.</p></div>
