Dr. Katie Bouman and the Black Hole

This has been a big week in Science and mainly physics. The first photo of a black hole. Watched the TED talk she gave two years ago. Her timeline was pretty much spot on. A computer scientist who as part of the time made a historic discovery.

Using telescopes worldwide and networked together and a whole lot of computers processing vast amounts of data. Simply impressive. In the most famous of the photos it looks like she is an Apple fan. Using a MacBook and in some other photos it looks like she is using some iMacs.

For daughters, sisters, and nieces it is great to see women in STEM and doing great things.


This has been an unbelievably exciting week for space-related science!
