This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
This is incredibly similar to a request I did for Space Science, but a few people had some ideas for improvement, so here it is: Space Science v.2... ASTRONOMY!!!

GUID is 0x000D6F00 - no overwriting
Has it's own icon - see attached
Focussed Skills: Logic, Body, Mechanical and Cleaning

Astronomy: Everything you could ever possibly need not to know about space. From Black Holes to the Borg, Astronomy is essential for any budding Astronaut.

Basic Engineering: How to make the Rocket go Zoom!
Basic Emergency Responses: Locating Barf Bags

Resisting the Urge to Press the Red Button: The Do's and Don't's of Space
Emergency Procedures: Flashy Lights and Ray Guns

Opening the Door Without Flying Out: The Fine Art of Space Walking
The Solar System: Advanced Space Vocabulary and Identification

What to Do When a Big Cube Spraypainted "Resistance is Futile" Comes Along
Senior Project: Collecting Cheese from the Moon

If you have already downloaded Space Science, feel free to download this one, but there are *quite a few* parallels between the two! If you want this one and not the other one, the file you need to delete from your downloads folder is "major_spacescience_whiterider_0905"

Please comment, hit the thanks button, and tell me about any bugs/problems/smart ideas for improvement!

(I'm not sure what yo mean here, so if I explain something really basic which you already know, please don't think I'm patronising you!)
It's a custom major for your Young Adult simmies to study at college. Very simple to use, unzip into your downloads folder.
However it won't show up on the select major panel ingame, so do a search for "majors made easy" and download that wonderful piece of technology, follow the instructions on that thread and VOILA!

The major itself is an improved version of a request I created called Space Science - which you can find, along with all my and others' custom majors, in the forum this thread is posted in!

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
