What do your course prefixes mean?

Great question! “SCI” courses teach science communication. “ETH” courses teach ethics and philosophy topics. “TOP” courses are applied science topic courses contributed by the members of the Blue Marble Space community. Don’t be confused by the number — higher numbers don’t necessarily mean they are more difficult. Higher numbers may build on material from lower numbers. For the TOP courses, those are of equal difficulty and numbered in order of their creation.
