    I always wanted to know the difference between aeronautical engineering and aerospace engineering. I tried googling and searching over the net, but i could not find any detailed differences.

    As far as I know, Aeronautical is in-atmosphere and astronautical is out of atmosphere. Aerospace is an umbrella term that encompasses both disciplines.
