Description: Physics makes the world go ’round…(or at least explains the process)!

Gravity, Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, the Uncertainty Principle, the sub-atomic building blocks of matter, the large scale structure of the universe, the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics….

What do these have in common? They are all part of the intellectual heritage of physics and astronomy, the disciplines that enable us to understand the world, from the invisible particles that make up the matter around us, through our sensory experiences, to the unimaginably vast reaches of the universe. The accumulated knowledge is broad and deep…but the search for understanding continues. Who knows what revolutionary ideas lie ahead?
