I'm currently studying physics and astronomy as a second year student. I really like the subject area, but I'm am unsure of how likely I will be able to find a job within private industry relating to astronomy/astrophysics. I know there are a few jobs out there, but GPS and satellite surveillance don't really sound to appealing. Now the recent success of SpaceX is encouraging, but that's about it. Now for a few questions. What are some potential positions as an astrophysicist in the private sector? Will I need to pursue a Ph.D for these positions? What are you thoughts on an astrophyisics and aerospace engineering double major?
