SAAO Gravitational Wave Documentary
The video explores the relevance and power of the 4th industrial revolution and its applications in our modern day society. This exploration is done through revisiting the detection of the gravitational waves by the Southern African Large Telescope and the MASTERS telescope in Sutherland. The Gravitational Waves were predicted by Albert Einstein. Through using the Intelligent Observatory which utilises 4IR methods , South African based telescopes were the first to detect the gravitational waves. The video further explores the modern day use of 4IR methods such as, data management, data mining and data visualisation, using the detection of the gravitational waves and the intelligent observatory as examples.
