Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Want to become an Astrophycisist? Want to become an Astrophycisist? Most professional astrophycisists (around 55 percent) are either faculty members atuniversities and colleges, or affiliated with universities and colleges through observatoriesand laboratories. For these phycisists, teaching is their major duty. What is Astrophysics? Do these interest you? If so, continue reading! What will you do as an astrophysicists? As an astrophysicist, you will seek to understand how the universe works and our place in it. You will also search for the key to life on many planets in order to find out if we really are alone in this universe.You will thoroughly research the science behind the universe, and understand many of the phenomenon in it, such as black holes, the development and the extinction of stars, dark matter, the universe's expansion and many other interesting events and entities.. How does the universe work? How did life form on earth?Are we alone in this universe? In the process of understanding how the universe works, astrophysicists in institutions such as NASA, try to answer the following questions: We're Hiring! This includes understanding the nature of black holes, dark energy, dark matter and gravity To answer this scientists in this field explore the creation and the evolution of stars, galaxies and our solar system Finding the secret to life in order to applythat to different planets Where will you Work? Theories Used by Astrophycisists The theories that are used in astrophysics arevery similar to those that are used in cosmologyand astronomy. Some of these are, for example: Hubble ConstantPartial Impact Theory Big Bang Theory Named after astronomer Edwin Hubble, who hypothesizedthe rate at which the universe expands, which is approximately160 km/sec per million-light-years One of the most popular theory in astronomy, astrophysicsand cosmology. Its key ideas are that the universe is expanding andat one point, all of space was in a small concentrated point. From "The Romance of the Heavens" where Alexander BIckerton states that a slight grazing collision between stars temporarily creates a bright third star. Academic Requirements The female to male rate in this field of physics is 1:4 and the amount of females are increasing every year. Salaries Cool Fact! (1) (2) Inventions The reason astrophysics and astronomy in general is done is because humans want to know the origin of the universe and out place in it. Astronomy enriches our life and feeds of the curiosity of many people and has certainly changed the way that we look at the world around us. For example when Nicolaus Copernicus claimed that Earth was not the centre of the Universe, a revolution was triggered through which religion, science, and society had to adapt to this new world view. Astrophysics' impact on society There are a few technological developments which have become invented for astrophysics and then turned out to be useful in other areas. Some examples of these technologies includelow-noise radio receivers (used in cell phones and many other applications) and parallel computing.However it is completely possible for one to make more inventions in this field and that's where youcome in! Join astrophysics and maybe even YOU can have your own invention! Current Astrophysical Problems We're Hiring! What is gravity? What will be the fate of our universe?” (3) (5) (4) How did the universe begin? What is dark energy? (1) Radio dishes used by observational astrophycisists (2) Astronomer and mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus who brought forward the idea of the Sun centered universe (3) Stephen Hawking, one of the most well known scientists of today (4) Edwin Hubble an American astronomer who played a crucial role in establishing the field of extragalactic astronomy. Astrophysics is the branch of astronomythat deals with the physics of the universe.As a scientist in this field, you will use disciplines of physics from, and not limited to mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and atomic and molecular physics. If you are interested in an entry-level jobs in astrophysics, you will typically need a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in astronomy, astrophysics or physics.if you are more interested in research assistance or consultingpositions, you are required to have a Master of Science (M. Sc.).A doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in astrophysics is required if you wish to work for a college or university as a teacher or a researcher. Want to make money?Scientists at national or government labs earn the highest mediansalaries of any profession! Observational astrophysicists spend 10 and 30 nights per year working at an observatory using state of the art telescopes and radio dishes to study the spectrometer and extraterrestrial entitiesor they get observations from spacecraft using special telescopes with X-Ray and gamma radiations. As this type of astrophysicist you will spend the rest of your time analyzing the data you've collected.If you are more interested in observing through equipment such as the supercomputers of manyuniversities and laboratories, then theoretical astrophysics may be right for you. Median salaries at universities and colleges depend upon the size, quality, and competitiveness of the school. As an assistant professor you will make about $50,000 for 9-10 months (school period), and as a senior professor you will make around $80,000-100,000 for 9-10 months. Many of these astrophysicists also do research for laboratories during the summer and this can add extra cash totheir salaries and an ability to work with other physicists andgives them a chance to answer the unanswered! Like in all areas of science and physics, there are many things that we are still not able to answer with today's modern technology and the input and years of work by manyscientists such as Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Edwin Hubble and many more.These problems are being addressed currently by modern astrophysicists such asMichio Kaku, Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene. Cool Fact! Here are a few astrophycics problems being adressed right now.Since these are still unsolved, maybe YOU can be the first to findthe answers! Get a job in astrophysics and watch yourintelligence expand faster than the universe! That's really fast
