This video was sponsored by Coursera. Go to Coursera to check out their courses, like IBM’s Data Science Professional Certificate: http://go.thoughtleaders.io/1030720190709. The first 100 people to enroll in the IBM Data Science certification before the end of July will get their first month for free.

The search began with a physicist checking for sources of static on phone calls in the 1930s, but it took several decades to finally make one of the biggest discoveries in astronomy, Sagittarius A*.
