“20 years ago, the only planets we knew of were in our own solar system,” says course instructor Dimitar Sasselov. Times have changed, and this course will tell you how. Questions about whether there’s life beyond our own universe has filled millions of pages of speculative fiction, taken up years of time on movie and TV screens, and consumed billions of hours of kids’ and astrophysicists’ daydreams. Now, a new free online course offered by Harvard can arm you with facts you need to learn more about “alien life, how we search for it, and what this teaches us about our place in the universe.”
