Hi guys. I recently got into an internship where I would be doing research in bionanotechnology. My first problem is that I randomly applied for it, not knowing anything about bionanotechnolog. My second problem is the fact that I have not heard back from all of the other internships that I applied for in astrophysics. I need to accept or reject the offer fairly soon, so what should I do? Should I go into a field I have never considered and see if I get lucky, or should I wait for the other offers and make my decision then, but with the risk of losing this first opportunity? Thanks for your help!

I'd probably at least contact those others you've applied to and tell them the situation. At least the one(s) that you want the most.

Similarly, you could try getting the bionano offer extended; explain your situation, and they might be able to wait a bit longer for your answer.
