Astrophysics

Astrophysics is an extension of classical Astronomy which deals with the celestial bodies and phenomena. Astrophysics can also be defined as the combination of Astronomy and Physics. Some areas where we can see the applications of research in astronomy are electronics, advanced computing, communication satellites, optics, solar panels and MRI Scanners.  Even though it takes time before an application of a research in astrophysics finds its way into our daily life, the impact it eventually makes is worth the wait.

To describe some of the more challenging events that are observed by astronomers, concepts from theoretical physics are patterned to help in the elucidation. This laps into research and allows the presentment of fairly recent results from the erudite literature. The natural entities are those discovered by astronomers, but the interpretations often require additional trips to the laboratory here on Earth to extend traditional physics. Stars, for example, are quite large. Putting one in a laboratory for examination has not happened. But, by using computer simulation and creative miniatures, a star can be represented. Radio astronomy paved a way to excellent communication tools, devices and data processing methods.
