Hi Guys,

new to this forum and was hoping I could restore my faith in humanity here!
I've spent the last 4 days head scratching on a analytical project which I am supposed
to come up with a proposal for before next Sunday. That said, I thought I would do it on something
I'm interested in, 'Astronomy'. It had to be Analytical (data analytics course) so I was steered towards to the SDSS (Sloan Digital Sky Survey) data which is available and told to "find some data or section of data from it, and from that ask questions of it and also run some analytics on it". I have a general interest in Astronomy, but am so red eyed now from looking at research papers and the like that I've lost all direction.
Would anybody here care to suggest 'just one question' (relatively simple to a degree!!), as to where I might start?

Thanks in advance and apologies as this is my first post....
(bloody students!)
