Lecture no. 5 from the course: A Field Guide to the Planets

Orbiting Earth: Up through the Atmosphere

Taught by Professor Sabine Stanley | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Compared to Venus or the giant planets, Earth has a relatively thin atmosphere. And yet, without this single, fragile layer, life would not have evolved and thrived. Discover the unique properties of each atmospheric layer— and encounter specific ways we’ve explored each layer as a springboard to exploring the rest of our solar system.
