Physics |ˈfɪzɪks| 

From Ancient Greekφυσική (ἐπιστήμη) phusikḗ (epistḗmē) “knowledge of nature”.

Physics is the study of matter, energy and their interactions. Broadly speaking it is the quest for knowledge and understanding of how everything in the universe works, at the most basic level.

The philosopher Thales (7th and 6 centuries BCE), dubbed "the Father of Science" for refusing to accept various supernatural, religious or mythological explanations for natural phenomena, proclaimed that every event had a natural cause.[1]

By 2014 the study of physics has given us modern technology, space travel  and an understanding of how our world came to be.
