  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
  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 sha
  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 ha
  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?
