Confused High Schooler seeking guidance in Intrests,Education and Career!!! First of all I want that you for helping and a hopefully being understanding I don't plan to even declare are major until end of Freshmen year, but I would like to learn a bit more about my science/engineering possibilities. First all I am very passionate about space exploration. Growing up I watch Carl Sagan's Cosmos,watching Space Shuttle launch in person and watching the unrealistic,but important Star Trek:TNG. Honestly I feel like this is one of my callings in life and I am firm believer that it the exploration and colonization of space is the most important thing humanity can do. I would like to study space and maybe work on some unmanned mission...maybe a manned mission one day. I would very happy to work at NASA.DoE or a contractor. What kind of careers/majors could this lead to? This is separate question. I love technology in general as well. I got to tell you,I am so lucky been born to see the popularization of the computer and the birth of the internet. I will admit that I am am total and utter geek. I always stay on top of the latest technology. Making this technology would be a wonderful job. I mean say Apple want a Iphone 4G. I would love to work on the design, finding out which hardware combination would give the best performance and price..etc. Maybe custom engineering some of the hardware.Working on some new idea to make it better by researching and addressing complaints. .What kind of job/major would this be?
