    I mean, what you should do is look into schools that offer this. Also, look at job prospects because if you wanna work in that field after you're finished, you'll likely be working in academia.

    I dont personally know, but i don't imagine is very probable to get a job at NASA. I mean, you probably need the highest marks in your class to be even considered.

    yeah, you could probably end up doing research in a university or elsewhere. you should probably know that your salary would be very small, research like this isn't funded

    think about it, why would people give you money to do research in this?
