Modern physics is the physics of extremes. From systems at the extremely small (atoms, nuclei, fundamental particles) to the extremely large (the Universe). From systems of the extremely fast (relativity) and extremely massive (neutron stars, black holes), to systems of the extremely hot (thermonuclear reactions) and extremely cold (superconductivity). This is the physics course you have been waiting for.
