The Astronomy Career Game

I didnít do as well in physics and math, and was lucky enough to find another major that I began to like just as much as physics and astronomy. I switched from physics to the biological sciences and realized that I really enjoyed plants and animals much more than atoms and mathematics. So, I decided to became an amateur astronomer instead, and just enjoy space the way I had always had since I was young. I later heard from some advanced students that some of their original passion for astronomy had been replaced by a more calculating and dispassionate view, and some even regretted having lost the Ďmagicí of space.

I considered myself fortunate that I had learned this so soon.
