I’m currently working on the topic ‘Applications of 4th Dimensional Space’ and just trying to get an idea if its geometry can anyhow be applied to solve few real-life problems and is it possible to actually bring in something so that we can observe depth of the solid objects too.

I am currently learning about the x ray emission through the galaxy clusters. It is a speculative phenomena with various ideas still unknown and is a hot topic in research. The uhuru satellite which first discovered this phenomenal heat and radiation in the intergalactic space had also explored the hot topics like black hole and neutron stars. My interests not only are restricted to the phenomena of x ray emission but also deals with the star formation and the effect of galaxies. It is difficult to explore the x ray photons in the galaxy but i wish to soon overcome the hurdles and be a part of such luminescent phenomena research.[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ee/NASA-2015IYL-MultiPix-ChandraXRayObservatory-20150122.jpg/220px-NASA-2015IYL-MultiPix-ChandraXRayObservatory-20150122.jpg]. i will soon share a ppt of my conclusions from my study.

I recently read about Sigmund Freud’s Theory about how he divided human psyche into 3 parts: id, ego and superego - how it effects our decision making. The psychosexual development, eros and thanatos. It’s a very interesting read and would recommend for everyone to know more about our psyche.

And nowadays I’m interested in CRISPR tech using cas9 protein and reading articles on how it is used for genome editing and engineering.
