Meet the 29-year-old woman who helped us bring the first-ever black hole image

April 12, 2019

The groundbreaking first-ever image of a black hole was captured by a network of eight linked telescopes known as the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration.


 
But a second image has been also shared on social media and went viral, of a 29-year-old woman, Dr. Katie Bouman, Computer scientist.

She developed told an algorithm which has stitched together a picture of a black hole. She told nobody except her colleagues. Until today. That's when Event Horizon Telescope team, of which Bouman is a member, unveiled the first image of a black hole.



“When we saw it for the first time, we were all in disbelief. It was quite spectacular,” Bouman told BBC Radio 5 live.

U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a vocal proponent of women in leadership, praised Bouman’s “enormous contribution to the advancements of science and mankind.”

President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump tweeted: “Big congrats! Hooray for #WomenInSTEM like Bouman!”




“3 years ago MIT grad student Katie Bouman led the creation of a new algorithm to produce the first-ever image of a black hole,” MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab wrote.
