    To do astrophysics research you almost always need a physics PhD (or something very similar). You need to be studying physics and thinking about how to get into graduate school for a physics PhD.

    "electronics and communication" is a degree? What exactly are you doing? I don't think the demand for astrophysicists is high enough to make E. engineers potential candidates (may be wrong, though). Maybe if you write an outstanding article on the subject (not something that comes from thin air) you can manage to get there with a different degree.

    Me too. Why did you get into electronics and communications? Couldn't have chosen physics back then?

    Do some research, go on a mentoring session and volunteer for local science fairs.
