Please be detailed; I'm very interested in hearing your answer to the following: 1) Why did you choose physics as a career path? 2) What environmental factors furthered your interest in physics (e.g getting a telescope for Christmas as a boy)? 3) Why do you think the environmental factors in the previous question assisted your interest in physics? 4) Is there another career (or perhaps more than one) that you would prefer or enjoy just as much? Thank you for your time.
