What physics fields having to do with space are growing?

  1. Sep 15, 2015 #1
    I'm in my first semester at a JC and I'm trying to figure out what kind of physics I might want to pursue as a career. I know I love space, and I want to be able to apply my math towards it. What initially sparked my interest in physics was theoretical physics, however, I soon realized the job demand was low. I've also looked into astrophysics because that sounds like something I would love but I haven't gotten any specific information on the job market. I also don't know what I'd do with an astrophysics major (I'd rather not be a professor as I dislike teaching and am bad at it). Also, don't be shy to name other fields of physics besides astrophysics that focus on space because I'm still trying to figure out what field to pursue.
