Hello, guys.. i Need a little help here... My name is Kavin and i'm from Malaysia... See, i want to be an astrophysicist but i don't know how to be one. I know my first step would be to do diploma in physics. Since i can't do that in Malaysia ( because that course doesn't exist here ), i have to go abroad. Now, can anyone tell me a university or somewhere i can do a diploma in physics with SCHOLARSHIP provided...? Secondly, i'm still confused with the basic thing.. I know this may sound irritating but what is the difference between and astrophysicist and a astronomer. Let me get this clear, i want to go to space and at the same time i want to study about it too... So what shall i be, an astrophysicist or and astronomer or both..? Thirdly, where does an astronomer or an astrophysicist work ?.. what do they do for a living.. i just still don get the point.. Are both occupations, first of all ?... and who will i have to work for if i become one..., who will hire me.? I've tried Nasa's webpage but it doesn't say anything about astronaut or astrophysics... I'm still confused... any information about this are most welcome..! Thanks anyway...!
