Hi, I am currently in the first of two years of the leaving cert course (A levels), and I am considering a degree with a view to having a career in Astrophysics or Cosmology. I study along with the compulsory subjects of Irish English and Maths Physics Chemistry Spanish and History. I do (currently) believe this is the area of science that I would most enjoy, having always found all aspects of astronomy (that I am aware of) fascinating for as long as I can remember. I was just wondering what are other peoples experiences and opinions on this area. Pros and Cons, what it is like etc... Thank you in advance for any replies!
