Cosmology tries to describe the universe as a whole (assuming this to be a meaningful concept). The single objects, from atoms to stars to galaxies and their clusters, are used as sources of observational information, but cosmology must also provide the proper frame which enables their formation and evolution. The main emphasis in cosmology is mostly not on the objects. It is on the metric of space and time ; and on the average density of matter, radiation, and energy, on its change with time and perhaps its spatial fluctuations.
