S61SW Posted January 22, 2009 Share Posted January 22, 2009 Hi there, first post here, so please be gentle with me!Is there anyone here who could give advice to someone in their mid forties (me) about how a career path in astronomy might work?I'm aware that I need a relevant degree, but am a bit overwhelmed by the various courses on offer, and what options there are resulting from the choice of a particular degree. (I'm in the early stages of research into this at the moment).Also, would anyone be willing to give advice on the practicality of considering astronomy as career at my age?I'm looking for broad advice, so please don't go to any great trouble.I will add that I have had an interest in the universe from an early age, and believe that I have a wide (if not terribly deep) knowledge of all things cosmological.Thanks in advance to any replies, and I'll give more details about my situation if anyone needs it to help me.S61SW Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
