Too bad it was only an introduction, it has a potential to become a great series of courses. I liked the teaching style, and presenting difficult facts has been done in a casual way, so it made things quite easy, maybe even too easy in the quizzes. I'm a bit sad this isn't a regular course, even though self-paced courses have their advantages, I'm always much more a fan of the live ones. A solid course and a nice introduction!

The instructor is a good presenter but the lectures are somewhat superficial -- ie lack depth. The subject is well introduced, which will serve some students. Those wanting more should look into Mike Brown's... The instructor is a good presenter but the lectures are somewhat superficial -- ie lack depth. The subject is well introduced, which will serve some students. Those wanting more should look into Mike Brown's "The Science of the Solar System" presented by Caltech on Coursera. Several aspects of astrobiology are explored in much more depth.
