Katie Bouman, the scientist behind the first image of a black hole. Katie created an algorithm that made the image possible #WomenInSTEM #womensart https://t.co/anjif88j52
@womensart1 Hey @UnconventionalEmma, remember what we were talking about the other day? I’d like you to meet Dr Bouman. 🙂
@InvaderXan She is all over my birdsite feed today 😍
@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.
@polychrome @InvaderXan According to the BBC, she led the development teams, and was an MIT grad student when she started.
@UnconventionalEmma @InvaderXan ahh cool! 😀
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.
