The woman behind the black hole photo: Katie Bouman

There is a 29-year-old young woman behind the algorithm that provides a photo of the super massive black hole located in the center of the M87 Galaxy.

Katie Bouman, a computer scientist who graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is the person behind the computer program that made it possible to obtain the first black hole photograph in history.

Leading the project supported by a team from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics Center and MIT Haystack Observatory after graduation, Bouman used the algorithm to obtain the photo created by combining X-ray data obtained with radio telescopes in different parts of the world. He started to work 3 years ago.

Scientists have announced the photo they created by combining X-ray data obtained with radio telescopes in different parts of the world, with simultaneous press conferences in 5 cities of the world.

The photo, where the twists of light entering the gravity field of the super massive black hole can be seen, was recorded as the first black hole image in the history of science.
