Yes, I can go free now and finish the degree I started years ago, then could no longer afford. I only went to educate myself. I enjoy it even more now.

What good is a degree without the ability to put it to good use? The ability to answer these questions won’t really help a person to get through life OR hold a job! They might be good as conversation pieces at receptions & parties! IMHO. Maybe I’m just not getting the gist is the question.

I am 63 and still pondering what I want to be when I grow up.

Obviously the quality of the online education would determine what site you get it from. Y.A. would not be my choice.
I have seen one polar ice cap on Mars through a telescope when it was very close to earth. It was lovely.

I wish I had seen your question sooner….last night my husband and I stood outside looking at the Moon and Mars. He pointed out that it looked like Mars was circling the Moon; the way Mars and the Moon had moved throughout the evening made it look like Mars was moving counter-clockwise around the Moon…;)

On the serious side: I’m not yet a senior, I’m 49, and I do take classes online. These are not towards a degree…but they are still important in my opinion. I’m even considering going for a degree. I know that many people think that getting a degree when we are older is pointless, but I think taking classes and learning is something we should do throughout life.

Jack; the poles on other planets question made me chuckle-and also made me want to tell the questioner to go turn on the Discovery Channel. Ooo, better idea, we could send the Questioner to McMurdo Station and ask for reports on how warm it is now that it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere…. ;)

I’d love to see the answers to the tilted view question, that one befuddled me a bit. I do see your point about tilted views. Personally, I tend towards the Don Quixote type of tilting; but you make a good point about perspective.

You know, if Yahoo Answers did partner with a College, and offer degrees for good answers, I bet more people would participate. >grin< I think you are lucky to be surrounded by such polite cats…..we all need an appreciative audience at times.

I think it would be a good way to occupy ones time as we grow older. Never can have too much education.

I would love to go back and get an addional degree. As long as my mind and body stay active, I can have a better quality of mental awareness and interest . There are many things I would like to learn about.

There may be distortion in the mirror in the telescope too. Sometimes the lambda in the parabolic mirrors are not correctly matched.

Education ? I ‘m personally getting a substantial amount of education in areas I’m interested in via the internet. I have enough useless paper work laying around that I have no need/want for a paper saying someone thought I learned something. To each their own, my degree was satisfactory when I needed it, don’t need paper no more.
