What happened to anti-matter after the Big-Bang? What is the origin of mass in the Universe? What are the fusion nuclear reactions in the core of the Sun. What gives a particular material super-conducting properties? These are all questions that a physicist might ask. Why? Because physics is the study of the most basic building blocks of matter, from the smallest particles to the largest structures of the universe, from the beginning to the end.
