In a nutshell, I'm a 26 y/o currently active duty military member with 8 years in (as a Aviation Ordnance Aircraft Mechanic), and plan on getting out honorably late next year. I've always been interested in the universe (black holes especially) (and the fact we are literally a way for the cosmos to know itself), and cosmology in general, but I'm also interested greatly in the very small. Back to my question, I currently have a 3.87 gpa doing bs online courses, and just want to know where is a good place to start with classes on the path toward one of these degrees, and (other than the obvious) is there any schools in New England that anyone could reccomend to start out at. I have 3 years of free schooling to take advantage of when I get out, so I want to get as much knocked out as I can in pursuing my degree. I'm new here, but not new to blogging, so bare with me as I get used to this site.
