Abstract: Galaxies gravitationally attract each other and form galaxy groups (∼50) or galaxy clusters (>100). Nevertheless galaxy clusters are not the end of structure formation. Clusters further get together and form Superclusters. Recent studies have shown that the Universe forms cosmic filaments and voids. The superclusters are the intersection points of these filaments. In this work we present an analysis of SCC100 and Shapley supercluster members. Using X-ray data we try to understand the mutual interactions between individual clusters. Since they are the best representatives of the Universe, we try to address large scale properties of the universe.
