Forstly i was wondering what dark matter is because i've heard a lot about it 
but i dont actually know what it is or what it's ment to be.
Secondly is there any way you know of to get into Astronomy seriously without 
doing the whole physics thing. i would like to do more with astronomy. i hhave 
a telescope and use it as often as possible and i even get e-mails from NASA. 
its the rest of physics that i dont like very much. i love all aspects of 
astronomy and find it facinating but my love of Science lies with Chemestry. 
please could you tell anything you think would help me and give me any info you 
might have. Thanks a lot.
P.S please bear in mind that in England we dont have the Astronomy clases like 
you have in the US. It seems to be Physics or nothing. Help!
