Dear sir, Since childhood, the heavens above have enthralled me and I always wanted to be a part of it. I wanted to see what is beyond the earth with my own eyes and not on TV or net. I want to be an astronomer and also want to be a astronaut. I am presently in BTech first year and am pursuing Mechanical Engineering. I would like to go into space with an electronics background and am trying to get an upgrade. What are the prospects in each. Please help, Yours sincerely AnonymousSomeone.
