    I think if you want to be an astrophysicist you should have education in university on the department of astrophysics. You have to find some theory or if you an engineer you have to create something so important for example how we can fly into deep space with speed of light(maybe it's not good example but I hope you understand me ) but it is engineering, astrophysicists know so many math formulas because of this they can explain some events and objects in space.
    The second factor is where do you live if you live in USA or in Europe you have more chances to be an astrophysicist.
    But the most important is your desire. I wish that your dream will come to you:wink:
