    Why should I and you devote our life to space?

    Because unlike the fragment of time of Earth life...moment in space is worth many times that of moments spent on Earth. Space is so infinite and boundless and holds so many opportunities for us to prove ourselves as individuals and society and as a civilization. Let us devote our life to space now, starting today...to strive every day to bring space closer to us, to make stars reality, to develop propulsion methods to travel far into space and inhabit worlds and make planets known to us and well understood. Because once we devote ourselves to space we devote ourselves to the universe and prove our existence. Why burn in the moment of time in light of Earth? Devote yourself to exploring space...devote yourself to research and advances in space engineering and space exploration.

    you know my first pick was astrobiology because biology interest me...but after I studied and went to astronomy lectures I realized that people in a astronomy/astrophysics/astrobiology fields never get to experience what space is about...they remain near computers studying stars...they remain on the ground.

    Are you sure pursuing astronomy is the best course? Pursue aerospace engineering, that is what I am doing now.

    ya, thats why i started thinking about aerospace engineering... it seems to be better equip for what i want.
    I still want to pursue astronomy because, with it i only have to take an extra 5 courses to complete the aerospace engineering major... this is also what my teachers said would be better when i talked to them about what i want my future to be
    So im sure that im going to get that as a major too, i cant see why i wouldnt

    If you will switch to aerospace, I might do a joint aerospace competition with you

    hahaha, i think im going to try and do both for now... the only reason im going to try and do both and not pick one and stay with it is because my girlfriend wants to do both, and i cant let her beat me out... that just wont do, hahaha


    but what do you mean by joint aerospace competition?
