why physics?

As science and technology grow more complex,physicists of today and tomorrow will face intellectual challenges —with commensurate rewards — that their late nineteenth century counterparts could never have imagined. Physicists will be challenged with scientific and technological questions which stretch from the deepest recesses of subatomic particles to the vastness of the cosmos.  The intellectual satisfaction that comes from understanding a complex problem, or from being the very first to observe a new phenomenon, is unsurpassed in human endeavor, and makes physics a powerful draw for the curious and talented student. The purpose of a graduate education in physics is to refine and hone those skills, so that the student will be able to not only answer, but ask the right questions as well.
