Origins - Formation of the Universe, Solar System, Earth and Life is a free online course conducted by the University of Copenhagen. The course follows the evolution of life on our planet through deep geological time to present life forms.
About the course
The history of our planet and Solar System, during an interval of almost 5 billion years, is controlled by a series of key biological and geological processes. The course will investigate the prehistory and origins of our Solar System, the Earth and its tectonic processes, the origin of life and the evolution of the complex marine and terrestrial ecosystems that have uniquely defined our planet.
No background is required.
