Aren't astronomy and cosmology also hard sciences?

Yes, but I think they can be lumped together under physics. And they are sometimes only borderline hard. Experiments and observations are made on Earth, and we just assume they apply millions of lightyears away.

I see your point about Cosmology nt really being hard, but if you complain that we assume our experaments on earth apply everywhere, the same is true of physics.

I think astronomy ought to be mentioned someewhere on your listing.
