How have space, planets, the Earth,
and life evolved?

Nature is a complex spatiotemporal phenomenon, from the nanoscale to the terascale. In order to understand this scientifically, in Earth and Planetary Sciences, mathematics, physics, and chemistry are placed on the x-axis, theories, experimental observations, and field research are placed on the y-axis, and the Earth, planets, space, and life are placed on the z-axis. This allows each individual to find an intersection point made up of areas that interest him or her the most, and furthermore, allows a wider area of study to be covered.
