Once again this past week we’ve been busy scanning across the internet to find the latest information and Open University courses. The greatest university on the planet (we reckon anyway) is always innovating and leading the way on many issues that affect us around the globe and these news pieces reflect just that. So if there’s a free course or bit of news on the agenda then hopefully we will pick it up and stick it on the next Open University news.

The Earth’s atmosphere is essential to life. This is not simply as a gas to breathe: the atmosphere shapes the Earth’s surface, transports heat, water and nutrients and protects us from harmful radiation. Without the atmosphere, the surface of the Earth would be much too cold for liquid water and the planet would be a frozen desert.
Following on from a story we covered last week. Hundreds of thousands of people study for a degree with the Open University at Milton Keynes every year. It takes hours of time and dedication and students will tell you it can have a big impact on their family life. Now the OU is encouraging them to find unusual ways of saying thank you to those who’ve supported them.
