Astronomy and Astrophysics

Astronomers remotely study systems and phenomena beyond the Earth, normally by examining emitted, transmitted, or reflected light. Research spans space and time, from planets to stars to galaxies and aggregates thereof, from interplanetary to interstellar to intergalactic media, from the cosmic web to the Universe to the multi-verse. Most astronomers today use knowledge about physics in their attempts to understand the workings of the cosmos, and in that sense they are astrophysicists, too. Consequently, astronomical research often leads to new insights into physics, as was the case with the discoveries of dark matter and dark energy.
