If you like the idea of mensurative experiments
, the ultimate science
for you is Astronomy
. Nearby (in the solar system
and our little corner of the Milky Way
), things just move around and there is not a thing you can do about it other than look.
As you go further out you essentially get snapshots of the history of the Universe as it was at the time the photons you just collected passed by a particular spot on the way to your observatory.
