  1. I prefer to go the science route. Being a scientist. Which doesnt use the maths much or engineering.
  2. I am currently in my 1st year of university as a mature student (after a career change), studying the basics sciences and the maths (Chemistry, Biology, Calculus, Physics, English, Animal Health). The program I'm taking focuses on the study of animals, in preparation for veterinary school. Everyone who knows me, knows my big obsession with space and astronomy. I'm also interested in biology, and would like to somehow tie my interests with space in my career. I chose a career with animals (possibly to be a wildlife vet) as I find it too difficult to work in the space industry being from Canada. So, this is my backup choice. I'm wondering if there would be a way to get involved with space and manage to get a career in that field within Canada. I AM going to be applying as an astronaut as well! But I know the chances of that happening are even more slim. (Especially without military experience.) But, would there be anything space related I can do? Perhaps with biology or animal studies? That wont be extremely difficult to find? I'm not a big fan of the maths and the physics. And I don't want to be doing engineering either. So, im not sure... I thought of Astrobiology, but even with that, I dont know how to get involved or get a job.
  3. Unfortunately I cannot in Canada :/
  4. Well, for my second option of the two, I'd be more focused on studying our earth and our local planets (with probes hopefully) more than focusing on studying exo-planets as there really isn't much I can do with that at the moment. But, maybe in the future if its possible to study them, I would. I do want and I know I need to take Math, Physics, and Chemistry. Anything computer based would also be beneficial. These courses will be available when I take the Earth Sciences program. I'll be starting off with an undergrad program and moving my way up to obtaining a PhD or at least a Masters. We shall see. Is there a way to take both Earth Sciences and an engineering course? Because Id like to have the option of studying about Free Energy engineering.
  5. I got these binos last week, but only got once change to use them so far. Weathers been poop. That time I used it, I got a lot of condensation on it after use. I know that going from cold to warm conditions inside my house can cause condensation, but is that bad for these binoculars? Should it even be happening?
  6. Thinking about doing the same. Conditions were okay the past few days here in Canada. And today it really got bad. But hopefully tonight and tomorrow night itll get better. Been seeing a lot of meteor lately. Big bright ones. The meteor shower in the next day or two would be awesome with the new moon.
  7. I believe the term would be called a Planetary Scientist, correct me if I am wrong. Recently I made a post about helping me find a career path that is suitable for me that peaks my interests, but also is a practical job to find and work in. I wanted to make a new post about this talking about one specific field - Planetary Science. I'm consider myself to be very eco-friendly person, and everyone that knows me thinks the same. I care about the earth; against the use of fossil fuels, and any pollutants or toxins. I would like to help our earth to sustain a better / safer/ cleaner life without harming our environment (such as using free energy). I also have interests in astronomy and the study of the universe. I believe that Studying Earth Science would be something of my interest. I would be learning about the earth, from its origins billions of years ago, how it formed, its place in the solar system, how it has evolved, and how it is today. Not only would I be studying our planet but everything about our nearby planets, and hopefully any exo-planets in distant solar systems. By studying Earth Sciences and becoming a Planetary Scientist, I see two possible career opportunities: 1) Learning about the earth today (FREE ENERGY); Understanding our impact on earth, and how to prevent any further damage by learning about free energy; HOW to create more efficient and cheaper resources of free energy. (Solar, Wind, Water, etc.) I do believe that this would be more engineering related, I'm not really sure. Can anyone chime in on this one? -- If it is, what sort of engineering (As a 2nd Major) would it relate to most? 2) Study of our local planets and exo-planets; Since it is referred to a Planetary Scientist, I would not only study our planet, but also other planets in our solar system and planets beyond. I would love to work with the probes that study our local planets, and any other probes / telescopes that study exo-planets. How would one get involved with this? If taking Earth Sciences, what other course would you suggest? Astronomy? Or is Earth Sciences a good program for this? Then again, engineering MAY also work for this too, as I'd possibly work on engineering the probes? I see the advantages of doing a double major with Earth Sciences and anther field, possibly engineering or astronomy, or maybe something else, as long as it works with one or the two of my interests mentioned above. BUT if taking Earth Sciences and wanting to do a career out of the two options I mentioned above, should I take a second major with Earth Sciences? Or is there a better program that's more specific to my interests?
  8. Same. Then again. I keep hearing its easy to bump the prisms out of place. So I'm being extremely careful with them. So, i think there should be something 'better'
  9. Thanks! But gez, thats expensive. I think id rather make my own. I can buy the film and attach it myself. I think it would be much cheaper to do so.
  10. I just purchased the 15x70 celestron skymasters instead of the 20x80s as they were dirt cheap!! I'm have it mounted to my tripod, and for sun viewing, thats for sure going to stay on the tripod, as you mentioned, I dont want to have the filters fall off. So, better have it steady than free-holding it. I could possibly make them myself. But if I can buy it, that would be better. Unless its a big price difference? What kind of filters should I look at? Seeing sunspots would be great. If I could see any more details, that would be even better!
  11. Looked around, but havent seem much talk about this. Can you get solar filters with binoculars such as the Orion 20x80s? Is it even worth getting them for binoculars? Can you see sun spots and any details of the sun with binos? 2) Is there a way to take photos (DSLR / compact camera) through binoculars?
  12. I did mean to write from 5mw. Not 50. But, I guess something between 5 & 50mw sounds good. Something that will be bright with a nice clean green beam. Is a focusing one recommended? And how am I supposed to know which one produces a true 5mw or 50mw beam? The site that I'm looking at doesn't say much about them.
  13. My old green laser is pretty much dead. Its a bad one anyways. Button is getting busted. And it only runs on two AAA batteries. Looking for something powerful for astronomy. Looking for one around $75-100 Flashlight style I see a lot of green lasers from 50-230mW 532nm But Im not sure what the pros and cons of each are. I want something bright, will reach far, and is a crisp beam.
  14. Awesome! Thanks That actually helps a lot! To see what a lot of these scientists studied and to see where they ended up.
  15. What would you say is a good approach to being able to be a part of the Nasa (or any other organization) for their Mars missions?
