    So umm my first post on the site and so Im not sure how to phrase this. Im 15 years old, in secondary school and studying for my GCSE's, including physics, art, and astronomy. I want a career doing something interesting, because I do get bored quite easily. For the last 2 years I've been focusing on enlisting for the Army, but recently I have discovered that I am no longer eligible. I've recently been looking at career paths into the UK Space Agency and the British Antarctic Survey. I am looking for advice on similar careers, and also on pointers for applying jobs in these areas.

    Thanks

    Oh and also, I dont know if this will make any diffrerence, but I have Aspergers syndrome(the reason Im no longer eligible for the Army:mad:)

    Well if you're thinking of going into the 'space agency' field then a good course to do would be aeronautical/aerospace engineering. This is the study of aircraft and flight in space and in our sky. Also if you're interested and aren't certain on engineering a good course to do would be astrophysics and this could possibly lead into the space field.
    Also, if you did study one of these courses, especially the engineering one there is a opportunity to work with formula 1 companies as these university courses focus a lot on propulsion and dynamics which are vital in racing. Also, a lot of money is on offer if you are good enough.
