Astronomy - astrobiology, black holes
Physics - high energy physics

Many young scientists find themselves most fascinated by space and all the questions that exist about the universe beyond Earth`s atmosphere. Could there be life anywhere but Earth? How do we discover new phenomena in space? What are the origins of mysterious features like black holes?
