I live in Wisconsin, USA. 22 years old and would like to learn more about this kind of occupation. What's needed to get a degree in the astroinformatics field? How hard is it to get started and get out of the "amateur" stage of going over the data and learning how to read it in depth and figure it out how to build models and chart the data we receive?
