High Energy Physics:
After the discovery of Higgs particle (also known as GOD particle) at Large Hadron Collider@CERN on 4th July,2012, the next question now people are asking: what's next? Is there anything beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics? Is there any kind of New Physics. If yes, how it looks like and how to probe this. Can one test these ideas in high energy colliders e.g. proton-proton Large Hadron Collider, electron-positron Linear Collider?
Problem:  Searching for New Physics signatures at high energy electron - positron linear collider. 
Prerequisites: Understanding of Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and familiarity with the basics of Particle Physics. 
In 1987 the core collapse supernova (SN1987A) was observed in a nearby galaxy called the Large Magellanic Cloud. The total energy emitted in SN1987A explosion was larger than that by 10 billion Suns. The kinetic energy of the explosion carries about 1% of the gravitational binding energy of about  ergs and the remaining 99% going into neutrinos.
Now the numerical neutrino light curves can be compared with the SN1987A data where the measured energies are found to be “too low”.It is remain unclear whether this anomaly is due to a statistical problem or whether there is some New Physics.  

Problem: Constraining new physics from supernova, relic density constraint 
Prerequisites: Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Particle Physics. Some familiarity  with Quantum Field Theory may be useful.

SKA India: BITS Goa student activities: Recently, Five students  from BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa campus working in the Radio Telescope project under the leadership of Dr. P K Das took part in the event Vigyan Samagam 2019.  They conducted two session (i) Astro Quiz and (ii) Radio Telescope making workshop during the SKA week (17th - 23rd June, 2019). A complete report for this is available here (click).
