What is the best route to go from IT to Science? I have an undergrad in Computer Science completed in 1997 and have over 12 years experience in programing, software design, technical writing, telecom, & Point-of-Sale software. I am willing to go into any area of science, and I would like to spend the least amount of time in school as possible due to financial issues. I am especially interested in the physical sciences & astronomy and have many skills in computation to offer the science world. I did well in math and science while in school. I am grateful to hear anyone's suggestions or know-how in the matter?
