Japanese, Chinese, or Russian?? Hi, all! I went to the SCUWiP about a week ago and it was soooo exciting!! I LOVE physics! Anyway, just wanted to ask your opinion about the second language thing. I have heard that SpaceX is looking for physicists who speak both English and either Japanese, Chinese, or Russian to participate in their programs. I have friends who are taking Japanese, and that sounds like fun. But... given the choice which would you choose? Seems like Russians are more active in physics research than anybody else, so Russian might be the best choice. Japanese and Chinese might become even more necessary soon... I just can't decide. I have 5 years of Latin, so more Latin would be the logical choice. LOL - this is a fun conundrum to face, right? Plus, don't these languages come in many different flavors? How do I know I have picked the "right" one? BTW, I am not looking for a job with SpaceX. It is just that the topic got me thinking for the first time about this question; what language would be most useful working with the international physics community eventually?
