What is Science?
Science is defined by the Science Council UK as "the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence."
From sub-atomic particles to the seemingly limitless expanse of the universe, these science clips present topics from many scientific disciplines including biology, physics, cosmology and advice on how to approach and make sense of theories and scientific evidence.
Having reached certain limitations of discovery by observation and experimentation, today much of science has moved into the realm of philosophy with practitioners holding to theories based more on personal values and attitudes than those of irrefutable fact and testable hypotheses.
