So where is Physics today?

  1. May 31, 2010 #1
    I'm at the age where I'm deciding what I wish to do with my life, and Physics so far is the only true discipline I have expressed even a modicum of interest in (granted, it's more so than just a modicum). The amount of time I have dabbled in modern physics is limited to my secondary school knowledge and my curiosity, and hence I don't have a rudimentary idea of the landscape of the discipline. How boundless is the field of Physics today, compared to how it was during the classical ages? Is it akin to the other physical sciences (specifically Biology) in that the holistic realizations have already been chanced upon, or is there sufficiently more to learn?

    As budding Physicists, is there anybody who regrets their decision to enter into this specific niche of academia?

    Physics is hard,
    but if you stick to it, and complete your degree in physics, then it is definitely worth it, however if you give up (like some of my friends did) halfway through a degree in physics then you probably would regret doing physics

    only do physics if you are willing to put in the effort and complete your degree to the end
