To become a physicist, one must have a passion for science, and the endeavor to strive for the newest discoveries, and be able to give an explanation for the creation of the universe. Physicist’s are trying to explain the universe with smaller, and more elegant concepts, and mathematical equations with their skills of simplification. Is it possible to explain the beginning of the universe and it’s end with one simple elegant master equation. It would have to explain it’s own existence first.Being able to explain the origin of the universe has preoccupied scientists ever since the idea of unification started when Albert Einstein wanted to combine the four forces of existence. The Weak and Strong Force, Electromagnetic Force , and Gravitational Force into one complete master equation. This has been Einstein’s dream of unification, but couldn’t complete because of his death. But, many have partaken to this journey of unification that it actually turned into a race, or business where whoever finds it first, will be able to win the noble prize in physics. People of science are motivated by selfish ambitions that it has clouded their minds as well, but there are some noble scientists who are not doing this for money, or fame, but because they want to aid humanity, and help answer the questions asked by humans ever since they began to surface the planet. It has become more harder to find this theory of everything because science has solved less questions, and when a question is resolved, there are more questions. When someone makes a discovery there are more mysteries in the discovery, and more questions arise. The journey seems to be endless, but it has to end sometime. I mean, there has to be a point, a limit when the mathematical equations are simplified enough where these mathematical presentations can explain wide range of phenomena, and maybe explain everything with one set of equations, or one equation to explain everything.
Physics is the most challenging field one can take during their undergraduate years. It is the most difficult subject to teach yourself, because it requires abstract reasoning, and a lot of someones time to solve problems, and answer questions. But, in the end it immensely rewarding for the individual because it opens doors to the most lucrative careers in the career world. With a physics degree one doesn’t necessarily have to enter the physics field. With a physics degree, one can become a engineer, teacher of physics, mechanical engineer, computer scientist, other kinds of engineering field. One can even go into the medical field. Physics is the most fundamental science of all the sciences. Because of this physics graduates have triumphed over unemployment in the recession years, and have started careers in many institutions, and companies that need physics graduates to expand their companies. One can even go into graduate school and work with bigger companies engineering whatever one wants to engineer; if it is engineering machines like combustible engines for airplanes, or engineering the latest computer machine, it all depends in the wishes of the graduate in physics. It all depends. Academia needs more physics graduates.
