University Offering Free Course On Alien Hunting

In a move that will no doubt delight true believers, the University of Edinburgh in Scotland is offering a course called “Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life” as part of a “massive open online courses” program hosted by the Coursera consortium.

The free, five week course begins in January 2013 and will explore prospects for life elsewhere in our solar system and the required conditions for a planet to be habitable, as well as how to search for, and detect possible life on, Earth-like planets orbiting distant suns and how earthlings would be impacted by the discovery of an extraterrestrial intelligence.
