Astronomer - "I need some help"

Hi guys! I love astronomy and I'd love to become an astronomer but am actually really confused on what it takes and what I should do to get there. If anybody could give me some tips I'd appreciate it.

Hello there, I'm thinking about a way to learn astronomy from the beginning, but sadly in Sri Lanka, we can't learn astronomy as a subject in school. Do you have any idea about how can I learn it? If you have any ideas, please let me know! I'll be grateful for that :) Please help me................

Yeah, you are right, Alejandra. Khan Academy's courses are really so helpful!
But, to be honest, they are not enough to have a basic knowledge about astronomy! Astronomy is really so so so hard, but don't give up! It is also so a wonderful and beautiful one! The reason is that our Universe is so beautiful!
Okay, You can watch the TV series Cosmos by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. He is a very famous astrophysicist in the world. You can see there how wonderfully he explained about the universe and other things there. Even, sometimes you talked about Evolution, Microbiology, etc. If you watch the whole series, I am sure that you will be able to understand something about our universe. I am not gonna say that you will learn everything, Nah, it's not.
Besides, you can read some books, "Schaum's Outlines of astronomy" and "Mathematics of Astronomy". You will find lots of mathematical terms here in these books. And also there are lots of Math problems there. I hope you will like this. If you follow these things I hope you will have a beginner knowledge about Astronomy. Have a nice day!

It's a free educational program that has many lessons on a huge variety of subjects! they have an astronomy course as well as mathematics, physics, etc (good for if you're interested in astrophysics). Hope that helped a little bit! I can also try to brainstorm more ideas as well.

Astronomer - "Astronomy Theories."

I know A LOT about Astronomy. I love stargazing, and I hope to see Saturn one day. I sent my name to the Mars program, and I hope it gets there. I think people will be on Mars sooner than we think! I think we might be there by 2050. I have a theory about aliens: Why do most Astronomers and Scientists think that they need to look for a planet LIKE ours? Aliens could live on other planets. They don't necessarily NEED the same things humans do. There could be life on ANY planet, not just a "Goldilocks Zone" Planet.

Hi! I am very intressted in astronomy, especially Juppiters moon Callisto and the Mars. I´m so expectant on the data from Perseverance. Do you think humans could live on mars one day? I guess so.

Yes, but probably in our Milky Way galaxy too, because we know now we have more than 1000 billion stars in our galaxy, so probably 10,000 billion planets and far more moons.

Also, if you consider we have about 100 moons in our solar system, then we have a total of 100,000,000,000,000 planets & moons just in our galaxy.

So if you can find life in just 1 planet among 1 million, then it means we still have 100,000,000 planets or moons having life. Well, in most cases, life will look like bacteria, but why not 100,000 planets with intelligent life?

But probably far more, because life is supposed to appear everywhere. Recently, scientists told that our neighbour VENUS may have microscopic life in her atmosphere (but not on the floor).

The concept of colonizing the Solar System is intriguing, to say the least. Granted, I am much more of an O'Neill Cylinder or Bernal Sphere kind of person when it comes to space colonization due to the relative convenience, but planets are obviously really cool too.

I also agree with you on the extraterrestrial life point, too. They're probably really far away from us, maybe even in a different galaxy altogether.

Astronomer - "Fermi Paradox"

I want to discuss possible solutions to the Fermi Paradox. My theory is that aliens are currently all at a relatively early stage of technological development, or maybe they are intentionally staying quiet, so as to not accidentally broadcast the location of their home system to a hostile species, or maybe they have more advanced communication technologies than we do, and SETI is essentially trying to text them with a typewriter. Those are my three main theories, feel free to leave your own solutions in the replies.

Wow! you also think about the fermi paradox? in my opinion, maybe there is other life outside the earth. but do they have the same senses? for example, do they have eyes? can think? and are they really that smart?
in my opinion, not all living things have extraordinary intelligence like humans. and they may never have thought there was other life either so they never search or explore the heavens.
and if they really have sophisticated tools, what are the ingredients made of?
they could only be in the form of animals, or plants (hehehe)
and it may take them years to be found.
maybe they're outside the solar system
or maybe in another galaxy
I wish there might be alienTwT

C'est sûr qu'avant d'envisager de s'installer sur une autre planète, il faut l'étudier, donc il faut l'observer. Les meilleurs observatoires sur Terre possèdent évidemment les plus grand télescopes. L'atmosphère présente sur Terre déforme l'image (diffraction), mais aujourd'hui, l'électronique corrige bien l'image. Mais l'idéal reste l'espace, loin de toute pollution atmosphérique et lumineuse. Donc, le télescope idéal se situe soit en orbite autour de la Terre, soit sur la Lune (un des rares astres qui ne possède aucune atmosphère). Mais je te rassure, pas besoin d'être sur place ! ces gros engins peuvent être pilotés à distance. Donc un astronome n'est pas un astronaute, mais plutôt un astro-physicien ultra-passionné par les insondables mystères de l'univers...

Je précise qu'un astro-physicien est un chercheur qui possède un doctorat (Bac +8). Sinon, tu peux aussi être un astronome amateur, et là, aucun diplôme n'est requis.

modify delete 37492 - Reply from NP17 (France) - 2020-03-19

Les bases de l'astronomie, oui évidemment, mais si tu entends par là localiser et reconnaitre les différentes constellations dans le ciel, les télescopes d'aujourd'hui font la recherche à ta place (pour peu qu'ils soient correctement installés), grâce au système GOTO. Tu lui demandes une planète ou une galaxie précise, et le télescope s'oriente automatiquement grâce à 2 petits moteurs.

La 1ere qualité, à mon avis, de ressentir en soi la passion sans limite. Ensuite, je dirais : patience (attendre que le ciel se dégage), persévérance (1000 tentatives avant de parvenir à un résultat), intuition... Il faut aussi ne pas être frileux, car beaucoup d'observations se font en hiver, et ça se passe toujours à l'extérieur.

Astronomer - "Aspirant Astronomer is looking for help!"

There's such a marvellous world outside our little Earth! Astronomy interests me so much because it's full of mysteries and today we have technologies to help us, so the results are increasingly surprising! I'm most interested in stars and objects like black holes and neutron stars, but also in searching habitable planets. I've just bought a little telescope (Omegon refracting telescope 90/1000 EQ-2) but I haven't learned how to use it well yet. It's a bit difficult...
