1.4 The discovery of tidal heating
The new discipline of astrobiology – that is, the science of searching for extraterrestrial life – is not only rapdly growing, but has also captured the public imagination. This unit examines the emergence of icy satellites of distant planets as potential sites of extraterrestrial life. Focussing on the case study of Jupiter's moon Europa, the unit looks at the potential for life there, and speculates on the ethics of searching for life elsewhere in the solar system.

This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced

Explore and Discover Observing
Find an Asteroid, Comet or Other Moving Solar System Object. Follow the motions of known solar system objects. Search to discover new ones. There are countless asteroids and comets orbiting the Sun. Plenty for everyone to track and map. All are interesting. Some astronomers are searching for ones that are in Near Earth Orbit and other astronomers search for dim ones way out by the orbits of Pluto and beyond.
