It was super interesting! Hope Professor Cockell will put together more classes!

A very high level introduction to the field...hope they add more advanced courses on this topic

Very interesting. I enjoyed learning more about biosignatures detections and proper conditions for life on other planets. I recommend this course for everyone interested in the subject. Please note the course seems to date back to 2013, and new discoveries have been made afterwards - like the TRAPPIST-1 system found in 2015 and recently announced by the NASA. But the fundamental notions remain the same.

I liked it. Thank you very much.
