This 5-week course is for those wanting to improve their understanding of how living things work. The earth’s biosphere (which extends today from around 3 miles above mean sea level to about 7 miles below) is shielded from the vacuum of space by an atmosphere just a few miles deep. Oxygen is the key, but where did photosynthesis begin, and how do animals unpick it to release the energy captured by plants? The course includes a little earth history, a little cosmology and lots of biology.
