The science of stars and stones. Archaeoastronomy is the “science of stars and stones”: it studies the relationships between the ancient monuments and the sky, in order to gain a better understanding of the ideas of the architects of the past and of their religious and symbolic world. The course provides the first complete, easy introduction to this fascinating discipline.

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.
