La question de la vie sur d’autres planètes que la Terre est une question fascinante. Nous savons depuis les années 1990 que le système solaire n’est pas unique : il y a des planètes autour de nombreuses autres étoiles. Mais nous n’avons pas encore trouvé d’exo-planète véritablement similaire à la Terre. Au cours de ce MOOC, nous partirons à la recherche d’autres mondes habitables. Le premier chapitre vous plongera dans l’histoire des premières découvertes d’exo-planètes. Vous découvrirez les méthodes pour les détecter, et leur extraordinaire diversité.
