Spaceflight is exciting, and you don’t have to be a “Rocket Scientist” to share in the excitement! Join MIT Professor Jeffrey Hoffman, a former NASA astronaut as he teaches you the core principles behind space travel. The course will cover how rockets work, how spacecraft move in orbit, how we create artificial environments inside spacecraft to keep astronauts alive and healthy, what it’s like living in a world without gravity, how the human body adapts to space etc.
This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
