Sprinklr : ✨ The cosmic cycle of star formation is an essential part of the evolution of the universe.

🔭 New research provides insights into the complex nature of one of the important tracers of star-forming activity in galaxies — singly ionized carbon: go.nasa.gov/2ZV8rBO

Sprinklr : I remained focused on the core theme of discovery as I grew up, strengthening my passion for science... With willingness, enthusiasm, and perseverance, goals can be reached.
