I want to be an Astrophysicist..?
I am currently a sophomore in high school and am completely intrigued with the universe and all of its concepts and ideas, and I've always been the one who wants to know how exactly things work. I think this job would really be a great combination of the do and i could do something that would actually be fun for me for a living, but I am wondering what classes i should take in high school?

This one of the few jobs I've really looked into so all answers would be greatly appreciated.
