What are the Physical Sciences?

Think Albert Einstein, Newton’s Law of Gravity or the Hubble Space Telescope. Think matter, motion, and energy. The Physical Sciences are concerned with non-living systems and their interactions with and impact on human life. Unlike the biological sciences and their microscopic focus on plant and animal organisms, the Physical Sciences draw their conclusions about the world from its physical properties. The Physical Sciences include chemistry, physics, computer science, space sciences and nanotechnology.
