i didnt belittle you unitl you cursing, telling me to shut the hell up etc. i call you delusional because no one else has the balls to tell you that you sounds it. you are 25 year old psych major looking to change to physics, graduate undergard at 28 and you think nasa is going to hire you to study space and improve space travel. im a realist and that sounds delusional. sorry if thats too honest for you but it is
Age is irrelevant to being hired to NASA/SETI, so he could be eighty-fucking-seven and as long as he has the intellectual and creative chops he'll get hired to do some space work. This isn't the movies where young high-school aged kids write two high thesis and are smarter than everybody in the room at an Oxford graduate party. If he's passionate in physics, he should pursue it, and if it turns out to be a mistake following shit he's interested in, I'm sure he'll be okay with such a potential "fuck up".
