授業の目的 【英語】
Goals of the Course
In this course students will learn about the characteristics of the planets and other components of our solar system (e.g., orbital parameters, atmospheric conditions, surface features and processes, geological activity, internal structure and composition). We will use the knowledge of our own planet Earth as a reference to understand processes taking place elsewhere. During the past fifty years, various spacecrafts and exploration devices have been used to acquire information on our solar system, sending back to Earth ever more detailed images of distant worlds and considerably expanding our knowledge of these far-away places. The course will review the different means of space exploration, and use abundant data acquired by past and ongoing missions to illustrate the characteristics of the planets and moons of our solar system. A recurrent topic throughout the course will be the search for extraterrestrial life. We will also discuss the future of space exploration.
