Question about astrophysics

  1. Dec 1, 2003 #1

    I am an undergrauate in physics right now, and I am trying to figure out where I want to focus my attention when I go into grad school. I have always been really intrigued by space/astronomy and figured astrophysics would be a natural progression of that.

    At my university there happens to be no astrophysics department so I was wondering if there is someone here who has worked in that field, and would be willing to tell me some things about it.

    Some questions I have are:

    I know that there are new things coming out of astrophysics all the time right now, but what kind of research is mostly done?

    Outside of doing research at a university what type of jobs are there in astrophysics (aside from obvious places such as NASA).

    Thanks in advance,
