It's a beautiful day in Southern California. The sky is blue and the waves are crashingon the shore.

And that the waves are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon on Earth's oceans? Exploring these types of quesitons is what physics is all about. To learn more about physics, students and others can use the direct links on The Times' Launch Point Web site. Go to: http://www.latimes.com/launch/
