I've always been fascinated by theoretical physics. I first wondered into physics by watching Steven Hawking: Story of the Universe. After that I searched for as much media as I could about Steven Hawking and other great physicists just to learn more and satisfy my fascination. I've had an interest in physics for about 4 years. Theoretical Physics is the theorizing of laws of physics using equations, graphs and other forms of proof. Being a theoretical physicist has great job possibilities such as being a professor at universities. Physics never ceases to amaze me; it's amazing how simple of a subject it can start off as being from discussing the parts of an atom to how to calculate the radius of a black hole by looking at its event horizon. Training for being a theoretical physicist requires years of knowledge and even a college degree. Of course on top of that you will need a creative and curious mind to discover solutions to unknown mysteries of our universe. The opportunities for having the passion for knowledge of these subjects could be chances such as: scholarships to technology institutions, gifted curricular or extra-curricular programs in this field, and being a physics professor or a famous philosopher for questioning and solving the unknown.
