Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
Strictly speaking astronaut is an inaccurate term as nobody travels to (or in) stars. Just as what was called, in the 80s, astronomy is now called cosmology because it refers to the cosmos rather than only stars, cosmonaut would be a better term.

Of course, they don't really travel to the cosmos either. "Low-earth-orbit-onaut"?
