Planets and Life in the Universe


In this course, we will explore the history, methods, outcomes, and broad impacts of exoplanet research and how these are connected to our search for life beyond planet Earth. Following an engaging contextual introduction at the beginning of the lectures, topics will be presented with an accessible mathematical treatment (e.g., geometrical derivations of the two-body transit problem). Prerequisite: Physics 191 and 192 or Physics 193 and 194.
