Science includes study of physical (non-living) world which consists of our entire universe, galaxies, planets, solar system, seasons, soil, etc. The chemical aspects of science deal with chemistry and chemical reactions. The biological sciences deal with life, including various life forms (past and present and future), their life processes and related aspects. The technological science deals with the technological marvels we see around us, including transportation means (airplanes, trains, vehicles, etc.), communication devices (cellphones, etc.), amenities, etc.
