Astrophysics

As a branch of space science, astrophysics refers to the applied laws of physics and chemistry to explain both birth and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe.

Astrophysicists often seek to understand the universe and to explore how all life began.

Here you can find all the latest research and discovery in the field of astrophysics.
