The three branches of science are:

1. Physical Science
2. Earth Science
3. Life Science

These are considered the pure sciences in which there are different subdivisions. These three categories can overlap. First the subdivisions will be listed per branch and then how they can overlap will be discussed.

Physical Science
* Physics
* Kinetics
* Mechanics
* Electro-magnetic
* Thermodynamics
* Chemistry
* Inorganic Chemistry
* Electrochemistry
* Analytical Chemistry

Life Sciences
* Biology
* Botany
* Zoology
* Organic Chemistry

Earth Sciences
* Geology
* Astronomy
* Meteorology

Here are some examples of overlapping sciences:
* Physics and Chemistry create Physical Chemistry
* Biology and Chemistry is Biochemistry also known as Organic Chemistry
* Geology and Chemistry form Geochemistry
* Astronomy and Physics equals Astrophysics
* Biology and Geology form Paleontology
* Geology and Astronomy form astro-geology
* Biology and astronomy and physics form astronautics

Science is knowledge where we typically study something in the physical world to explain it via the scientific methodn. The scientific method will allow us to look at a phenomenon by observing then explaining it via a hypothesis, in order to test it through an objective manner that has reproducible experiments in order to prove the results.

Science is all about proving whether a theory is workable or not. There are no absolutes in science, only a theory that has been shown to work. In other words, someone could prove a theory correct, but then someone else finds an error in the data and proves the same theory false. Think of Galileo and how he was persecuted before being exonerated for actually having the right concept, only everyone believed him to be false.
