So hard in fact I learnt new things. It was very challenging in that I had to really think hard about my home works. Prof. Brown has done an amazing job teaching this course and giving us fiendishly difficult questions to tackle...but the thing is I found these quizzes/homeworks addictive! The best MOOC I have done so far.

Mars is one of the focus of this course. You won't look at Mars the same way after completing this course. The best part is that this course teaches materials right from published papers of various journals. You see actual data and simulations. Our course instructor, Dr. Mike Brown is published author in peer-reviewed journals. His way of teaching has a calming effect. He talks about esoteric stuff in lucid terms. Lots of original research papers and abstracts are provided in the course "Resources" section for reference. This course will simply make you fall in love with our solar system.
