An Introduction to FERMI Bubbles
PLUTO is a piece of software which can be downloaded freely onto any computer. It provides the capability of numerically solving Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics problems via conservation laws and finite-volume and finite-difference approaches.

In order to create a suitable model for the FERMI Bubble phenomenon, the initialization files within the PLUTO directory must be modified in order to suit the problem at hand. Unfortunately, it took six weeks for me to fully learn how to manipulate said files, and I did not have time to create a presentable FERMI Bubble model.

Another proposed mechanism for the presence of these mysterious FERMI Bubbles has to do with the possible existence of dark matter particles. Astrophysicists believe that super-massive black holes, much like the one at the center of our galaxy, emit jets. These jets can interact with dark matter particles, causing a release of photons

PLUTO: Applications to FERMI Bubble Modeling
In the future, I hope to apply the knowledge I obtained with PLUTO, and create more suitable FERMI Bubble models.
The current version of PLUTO allows for solving systems of fluid dynamics equations in:
Classical hydrodynamics (Euler equations)
Special Relativistic hydrodynamics (RHD)
Special Relativistic MHD
Fermi has been collecting gamma-ray spectrum data for about three years using the Large Area telescope. Using this data, they attempted to probe reliable conclusions which support the dark matter interaction theory.
