Physics

As a natural science, physics studies matter, its motion and the behaviour of matter through space and time. The main goal of physics is to understand the universe and its behaviour.

Classical physics, nuclear physics, atomic physics and geophysics are just some of the branches of physics.

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