I am currently considering going into either Physics or Astronomy. My goal regardless of which one I finally settle on is to get my PhD. I have done some research to try and figure out the starting salaries for either field, and they seem to be similar. However, I am finding a wide variety of starting salaries ranging from $35,000 - $65,000 a year and the potential to make around $80,000 - $100,000 depending on the job and time at the job. I am wondering if someone could give me better, more accurate starting salaries. These can be broken down based off of research jobs, university jobs and government jobs. Thank you.
