Abstract: For over 80 years, scientists have performed intense analysis on Einstein's theory of gravity yielding nothing more than snapshots of the dynamics of our universe. Computer programs were developed to study Einstein's equations and as a result 'numerical relativity' developed. A collaborative computational framework was introduced allowing remote monitoring and visualisation of simulations and 3D simulations are now possible.
