Hello, My name's Konrad (don't let the username fool you! haha). I'm currently a junior in Aeronautical Engineering (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University) with a minor in Air Traffic Management. I was planning on just ending school with a Bachelors and going right out to work. However, I've been recently giving a lot of thought into Astrophysics. I'm considering getting a Masters in Astrophysics upon graduating and possibly pursuing a PHd in it as well if I enjoy it. I'm not interested in going for this as a source of income, this would be purely for my own pleasure and hopeful contribution to the community. Which leads me to my question, and to be honest, I haven't done much research yet, this is actually my first step. I'd like to start looking into good schools where I could go for a masters. What kind of schools should I be looking into. Also, are there any books that anyone could recommend to read regarding astrophysics, just to be sure it would be something I would genuinely be interested in before I drop 40+ grand. Thanks.
