Matthew completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Pretty interesting class. Gave a good overview of environmental science and its applications to Biosphere 2. The last section was the most interesting as it touched on human space trave and how it relates to biospheres.
