Chemistry examines the composition, structure, properties, and changes to stuff at the nanometer scale; this is the molecular and atomic scale. Chemists understand the world in terms of how these molecular and atomic units interact: Are the molecules bound to one another? Does one molecule effect how fast a chemical reaction happens? How does molecular component X interact with light in the fingernail polish formulation Y-126 after the brushed film dries on the cuticle? And a zillion other questions around which we can modify outcomes by modifying molecules. Often working to answer these questions can be very lucrative. Chemists have advanced understanding in everything from life to matter in outer space to probable extraterrestrial life in terms of atomic and molecular components. In very basic terms chemistry is the central argument in many other sciences and professions; an education in Chemistry opens many doors.
