What is science?

Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.

Knowledge, especially that gained through experience.

Science is a process for learning about the natural world, and also the knowledge generated through this process.

Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding.

Science has many branches, such as physical science, earth science, and life science. Life science is the study of living things -plants and animals. It helps to explain how living things relate to one another and to their surroundings.

What do humans know up to now about the universe?
Here are further guidelines.

What is the best method to learn science?
Learn about the manufacture of products useful to human being.
Learn about the human body: its diagnosis and treatment.
Learn about earth sciences or the environment around human beings.
What is a hypothesis?

A hypothesis is an idea or proposition that can be tested by observations or experiments, about the natural world. In order to be considered scientific, hypotheses are subject to scientific evaluation and must be falsifiable, which means that they are worded in such a way that they can be proven to be incorrect.

The hypothesis he formed based on his observations included the following:
1. In the organism there is a pair of factors that controls the appearance of a given characteristic.
2. The organism inherits these factors from its parents, one from each.
3. Each is transmitted from generation to generation as a discrete, unchanging unit.
4. When the gametes are formed, the factors separate and are distributed as units to each gamete. (This statement is also known as Mendel's rule of segregation.)
5. If an organism has two unlike factors for a characteristic, one may be expressed to the total exclusion of the other.

What is a scientific theory?

To scientists, a theory is a coherent explanation for a large number of facts and observations about the natural world.

A theory is:

* Internally consistent and compatible with the evidence
* Firmly grounded in and based upon evidence
* Tested against a wide range of phenomena
* Demonstrably effective in problem-solving

In popular use, a theory is often assumed to imply mere speculation, but in science, something is not called a theory until it has been confirmed over many independent experiments. Theories are more certain than hypotheses, but less certain than laws. The procedures and processes for testing a theory are well-defined within each scientific discipline.

What is a scientific law?

A scientific law is a description of a natural phenomenon or principle that invariably holds true under specific conditions and will occur under certain circumstances.

Science can investigate all sorts of questions:
When did the oldest rocks on earth form?

What causes gravity?
How do our brains store memories?
How do water molecules interact with each other? What causes Jupiter's red spot?
How does smog move through the atmosphere?
