Hey guys, I've had the ambition to become an astronaut ever since I was six and I'm almost sixteen now, and I'm still very serious about this. I know it's a difficult profession to get into and I know that the chances of it not happening are very high, but can anyone give me advice on what uni course I should take to get my best shot at this?
I was thinking of doing a medicine degree and then specialising in a space related area of medicine, but would I have a better chance of becoming an astronaut if I was an aeronautical or astronautical engineers? Or maybe even a pilot? I'm not really sure and since I'm taking my GCSEs this summer, I need to decide my a level choices really soon. For medicine I would most likely take biology, chemistry, maths and business but if I was going to do engineering, I'd probably have to take completely different a levels in maths, further maths and physics most likely. What do you think would give me the best shot at achieving my (pretty much) lifelong ambition?
