Plasma Physics or Astrophysics for a career?

  1. Astrophysics as a career?

  2. Plasma Physics as a career?

    For a while, I thought Theoretical Particle Physics would be a great career. Though, it is, I later learned it's a field that I would NOT be good at. I still wanted to get into Physics though, it has always interested me :). I need some help though. I've already researched about Astrophysics, and it looks great! Recently though, Plasma Physics came to mind. It looks interesting but I may have the wrong idea for it. So I have a few questions.

    -What is Plasma Physics?
    -What do Plasma Physicists do?
    -Where do Plasma Physicists work?
    -If YOU had to choose between Plasma Physics or Astrophysics for a career, which would you choose and why?

    Thanks :D
