Teacher or Engineer or Scientist
How far can YOU see? Where do you see the aerospace industry 10-20 years from now?
In two decades we will have hypersonic commercial aircrafts. Asia will become the dominant player in air travel. Drones will be common in everyday life. Humans will have set foot on Mars and will be exploring its surface. Asteroid mining will be a common thing. Humans would have either already found extraterrestrial life or be very close to making this discovery. The aerospace industry will be playing a major role in all of these.
One insightful fact you want everyone to know:
There are more stars in the observable universe than the number of grains of sand on all the world's beaches.
