Modern physics has been founded by the development of two fundamental theories in the first half of the 20th century: general relativity and quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics governs the physics of the small fundamental particles such as electrons; general relativity describes large objects with gravitational interactions such as stars and galaxies. Despite the great success of modern physics in explaining most of our physical observations, there are a number of open, unanswered questions.
