General relativity is classical in nature while quantum mechanics upholds the idea of quantization and interference at the subatomic scale. Quantum (field) theory successfully accommodates all the interactions of nature in its framework but gravity (this framework is called the Standard Model of Particle Physics). However, general relativity is the only available tool to study all the manifestations of the gravitational field.

Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is constantly hurtling towards our nearest spiral neighbor, Andromeda, which will one day swallow our entire existence. As a matter of fact, the Milky Way itself has been incubated by eating several tenuous star systems and galaxies for the past millions of years. There is no doubt, but fear, to say that our galaxy is on its way to be gobbled up by Andromeda, the order has been placed and will reach its destination any time after 4.5 billion years.

Humans have been scouring space in a quest to understand the prospects of human survival and the evidence of extraterrestrial life on other planets for a long time. Ground-breaking space missions like Voyager 1, Kepler, and Cassini-Huygens have revolutionized the way astronomers look at our universe and have opened new fields in planetary science exploration.
