CHAPTER ONE

FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS:
EXPLORING THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE

If you want to find out about the Universe at all scales--from the very tiniest subatomic particles all the way to organization of galaxies--here's the place to begin.

In this section of our story, you'll find out about the search for basic theories that explain how the Universe might be constructed. Learn about Nature's Design and have fun pondering the ideas of great thinkers such as Einstein (we promise to make sense of them!). You'll revolutionize your own thinking about the way things work throughout the entire cosmos.

We'll also show you how basic theories in physics get turned into amazing technologies that improve the quality of our lives here on Earth. The more we know about Nature's own laws and organizing principles, the more we can "design" for ourselves and our planet.
