ASTR 213 - Life in the Universe


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0

The aim of this course is to convey the detailed conceptual ideas associated with the important and topical question of the formation of life in the universe. The course will discuss all the environmental circumstances that seem to encourage the start of any life form and investigate the current state of our knowledge of life outside of the earth. This course addresses fundamental questions regarding the prospects of life elsewhere in the universe and the best ways to search for evidence of such life. These questions are looked at from a multidisciplinary viewpoint, which includes astronomy, biology, chemistry, and geology. However, other issues, including historical, cultural, and philosophical perspectives, are also included.
