Course Description 

Is life confined to our planet? Mankind has pursued the answer for millennia. It is a central feature relating to our origin and nature – “our place in the universe”. Recently UFOs have been back in the media.

Among the questions to be discussed: the search for extraterrestrial life; have we been visited by intelligent life? what is life? what is death? what is intelligence? No answers will be provided, but I hope we can share our perspectives and update our ‘understanding’. There is almost no mathematics or physics knowledge required.
