This was an interesting take on the depiction of space and extraterrestrial life in early and modern literature. I liked the reading material (I think a better way would be to include some non-copyrighted excerpts, this way people aren't that motivated to read it all if it's not easily available), and the lectures were short enough not to be a problem. It's great to enjoy a short review, and then indulge into reading. Quizzes were maybe to specific, but there is a wide array of possible topics to choose from when writing a peer-reviewed essay. I hope that the next iterations will include more forum discussions! It's a 4 for now since it's a young course, but I believe it will turn into a great one, once some mistakes are corrected.
