Physicists and Astronomers
To be a physicist, a Ph. D degree is needed for most basic research positions. Masters degree holders are qualified for some jobs in applied research and development. Bachelors degree holders are sometimes qualified for research assistants.
To be an astronomer, a Ph. D degree in astronomy is typically needed. A masters or bachelors degree is qualified to help in planetariums running science shows, help astronomers research, and operate space and ground based telescopes.
What they do
Physicists are people who do research to understand animals and life in the universe. They develop theories on why and how things do what they do and put this knowledge to work making new technology. They study forces of nature like gravity and electromagnetism.
Astronomers use physics and mathematics to learn about heavenly bodies such as moons, stars, planets, and galaxies. They also use their knowledge to solve problems in navigation, space flight, and developing technology and techniques to learn more about the universe.
