All About Physical Science

Learn about the structure of atoms in physical sciencePhysical science includes all areas of science that describe the physical world, non-living matter and energy. Astronomy, chemistry, geology, meteorology and physics are the main branches of physical science. Within these categories, you can learn about the solar system and the planets, stars and galaxies, what causes the weather, the structure of atoms, and the laws of physics including gravity, forces and motion and energy.

This Bright Hub guide to physical science has articles on a variety of physical science topics, from lesson plans for K-12 teachers and homeschoolers to advice on how to get an advanced degree, and even the requirements for becoming an astronaut.
