|Description:||Physics is the foundation of astronomy, chemistry, geology, engineering, and much of technology. Physics examines the principles that govern how and why materials move and influence each other. Astrophysics examines core principles in Physics, and applies these to the interactions and evolutions of all objects in the universe. Planets, stars, galaxies, black holes and the universe as a whole is further investigated. The study of Physics and Astrophysics involves both mathematics, and techniques of experimentation.
