Why can’t light escape a black hole? What exactly is dark matter? Why is the gravitational force so weak? In Physics, we know everything is bound by the same rules and happens for a reason. It’s the “why” of every action and reaction that keeps us curious.
The Physics program equips students with what we know about our universe — theories on matter, the forces, space, and time — so that they can reach into the unknown and answer the question… why?
