Since I was a little kid I've always found the outer space to be fascinating. I'm currently studying to become a Maritime chief engineer. It includes a lot of calculating electrical circuits, mathematics and physics (We call them level C, B and A - A being highest) at college level, and some chemistry. It takes three years. I only need to supply with some chemistry when I'm done, and then I can apply to a Astronomy course in Copenhagen. Can anyone give me some feedback on my idea? Is there a lack of astronomers, income and what else i can use this degree for..ect.. And, Do I need to get a PhD in astronomy to be able to look for a job? I also notice that there are not many astronomy topics here. Is astronomy just boring, compared to physics? :tongue2: Or is it just plain useless?
