Abstract

Explore the many moons of our Solar System. Find out what makes them special and ask whether we send humans to our Moon again.

Description

Discover the amazing diversity of moons in our Solar System

There are lots of moons in our Solar System. The Earth is the only planet with just a single moon. Some are bigger than ours. Many are much smaller. Some moons have ongoing volcanic eruptions. Others have rivers of liquid methane. A small handful may even be home to primitive life.

This online course will allow you to explore the rich diversity of moons in our Solar System. With experts from The Open University, you’ll explore the fundamental processes that have shaped them, and the relationship between our Moon and the Earth.

The course was produced with the kind support of Dangoor Education.

An interest in learning about the moons of our Solar System and the methods used to understand them. Prior knowledge of astronomy is not expected.
