TOP REVIEWS FROM ORIGINS - FORMATION OF THE UNIVERSE, SOLAR SYSTEM, EARTH AND LIFE
Excellent course on this topic. I have really enjoyed the process of learning and the knowledge I gathered during the process. More importantly, it has broadened my thinking.
Excellent course. Excellent instructors, all. Now I think I'll back up and go read Darwin's Origin of the Species with a more educated eye.
Fabulous review on the formation of the solar system, the planets, earth, chemicals and elements, geology, life, oxygen, plants, ocean patterns. It has everything.
I was delighted, engaged and challenged. The advances in some of the fields are breath taking. I will
definitely will continue to follow up with more reading.
