You might be surprised at just how many careers involve an interest in space. You could be an astronaut! You could explain orbits to primary school children! You could use satellites to study climate change on Earth. Ask yourself, what are you interested in?
We’re inspired by our Career Heroes - why not take a look yourself? We’ve also highlighted different interests you may have and the space careers that could be a good fit. Most jobs in space involve having a background in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Maths (STEM), but there are many different paths to these careers.
Of course, if you choose not to follow a career in this area, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get involved. An interest in space can develop into an exciting and rewarding hobby. Many discoveries from amateur astronomers lead to the expansion of our knowledge of the cosmos!
