Hi. I'm 15 years old (grade 10) and I live in Vancouver, BC. Within the past 6 months or so, I have developed an extremely big interest in cosmology and sciences like that. It would definitely be my top choice as far as careers go, and I wouldn't be too worried about the money I was making, as long as it was a decent wage that I could live comfortably with. My basic questions are as follows: Should I pursue this, and is there a big risk of spending a large amount of time and ending up jobless? If I was to go after this career, what universities would you suggest, preferably as close as possible? What should I do this year and the following two years to prepare, or heighten my chances of actually becoming an astrophysicist? If you don't think I should do it, what other jobs would interest me? I haven't found any subject yet in my life to be this interesting, so I have a hard time thinking of anything else I could do the rest of my life. And finally, any other information you think would be helpful. Thanks for your time!
