Katie Bouman, the scientist behind the first image of a black hole. Katie created an algorithm that made the image possible #WomenInSTEM #womensart t.co/anjif88j52

Hey @UnconventionalEmma, remember what we were talking about the other day? I’d like you to meet Dr Bouman. πŸ™‚

@UnconventionalEmma @InvaderXan do we know which team number was she on? There were 4 teams separately working on getting the black hole algorithm working and they all made it work. :blobthinking:


@polychrome @InvaderXan According to the BBC, she led the development teams, and was an MIT grad student when she started.


@UnconventionalEmma @InvaderXan ahh cool! πŸ˜€

I'm just trying to avoid doing that thing where we give one team member all the focus. I've caught myself doing that before too.
