In this module we will learn about the Solar System, our home in the universe with the help of detailed study, images, videos and animations. We will try to look in the violent past during creation while we try to determine what is in the future for us. We will also look at the formation and evolution of solar system bodies where we will observe the inner planets and outer planets separately. We will also try to understand the Asteroid Belts and Kupier Belt objects. In the end we will learn about the edge of our solar system and Heliospeher, Oorts cloud etc with a bit of introduction to interstellar space.
We hope that you will find the course interesting. We will have a few questions as part of the quiz after each session/module and we would appreciate your participation in them. There will be a few write up sessions or assignment submission which will be important towards competition of the course.
