PBS NOVA: Saving Notre Dame

Post by Scott »

Scanning plays a key role in this excellent documentary from PBS NOVA. The cathedral was scanned prior to the explosive roof fire in 2019, and afterwards when better data was needed for reconstruction.

Scientists and engineers fight to save Notre Dame Cathedral after the 2019 fire.
When the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral erupted in flames in April of 2019, firefighters battled for nine grueling hours to save the historic landmark. Still, Paris came alarmingly close to losing more than 800 years of history. Now engineers are in a different race against time: to rebuild the roof and secure the medieval structure of Notre Dame. Underneath the charred scaffolding and vaulted ceilings of the cathedral, scientists study the components of Notre Dame’s iconic structure to puzzle out how best to repair it. (Premiered November 25, 2020)
