    Wow. You could've just made your own thread. This one is 3 years old! Google also has a lot of answers on this sort of thing.


    The very brief way of knowing the difference is as such: Aeronautical takes place within our atmosphere. Aerospace takes place within out atmosphere, in space or space-like conditions.


    In practice, it's probably a minimal difference. You could probably do space work with an aeronautical degree, but I'm going for an aerospace master's postgraduate in a few years because I think it's a step above aeronautical. It's the same, with just a little bit more.
