Course description
Spaceflight is exciting, and you don’t have to be a “Rocket Scientist” to share in the excitement! 16.00x makes the basics of spaceflight accessible to everyone. Join MIT Professor Jeffrey Hoffman, a former NASA astronaut who made five spaceflights and was the first astronaut to log 1000 hours on the Space Shuttle, as he teaches you the core principles behind space travel and exploration. 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, and how spacewalks happen, plus more. Many lessons will be illustrated with Professor Hoffman’s own experiences in space. Advanced Notice of a Future Spaceflight Course Students who are interested in taking more online space-related courses should be aware that Professor Hoffman will be presenting a second online course in the fall of 2019 about “Systems Engineering and the Space Shuttle”. 16.00x is good preparation for this new course. Enrollment is now open 16.885x Engineering the Space Shuttle.
