    Astronomy students study space, the history and future of the universe, and the objects within, such as planets, stars, and galaxies. Subjects of study include the evolution of stars, how the stars and planets move through space, chemistry, and advanced math. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs for physicists and astronomers will grow by 14% between and , much faster than average. In addition to making higher-than-average salaries, these scientists can work in many kinds of industries, from automotive and aerospace manufacturing to working on models to terraform distant planets.

    The Academic WorkForce Survey has been conducted every two years since Between March and June , researchers contacted physics and astronomy departments (including 39 astronomy-only departments) that award a bachelor's degree or higher in physics or astronomy. Responses were received from institutions, a 90% response rate. This. The mission of the College of Arts and Sciences is to facilitate the learning of a large and varied student population, and to advance the frontiers of knowledge in the humanities, social sciences, and natural and mathematical sciences through a range of research activities that befit a flagship, land-grant university.

    This is a conference on various topics in physics and astronomy, including a few critiques of Thomas Curtright in view of the five decades he has enjoyed impersonating a physicist.

During the Critical Issues in Two-Year College Physics and Astronomy Conference, it became obvious to many attendees that there was a need to know more about physics programs at the community college and what could be done to impact their physics : Thomas O'Kuma.

This was followed by a two year post-doc at the Collège de France in Paris in the laboratory of Pierre Giles de Gennes. He then returned to the UK with a lectureship in physics at the University of Leeds.

Currently he is a senior lecturer in biological physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester.
