ONN – About Katie Bouman Creator Of First Black Hole Image From Event Horizon Telescope
Katie Bouman has worked on the imaging project for the Event Horizon Telescope for about 12 years.
Katie Bouman (or Katherine L. Bouman) first learned about the Event Horizon Telescope in 2007, back in high school in West Lafayette, Indiana, then pursued it as work in college at the University of Michigan. Now, Dr. Bouman is a post-doctoral fellow at MIT and Assistant Professor at Caltech, the California Institute Of Technology.
Here’s Professor Bouman’s TED Talk “How to take a picture of a black hole” from 2017:
"Meet Katie Bouman, who helped make the black hole image possible" https://t.co/2EqrgIbCGM

From the video page:
At the heart of the Milky Way, there’s a supermassive black hole that feeds off a spinning disk of hot gas, sucking up anything that ventures too close — even light. We can’t see it, but its event horizon casts a shadow, and an image of that shadow could help answer some important questions about the universe. Scientists used to think that making such an image would require a telescope the size of Earth — until Katie Bouman and a team of astronomers came up with a clever alternative. Bouman explains how we can take a picture of the ultimate dark using the Event Horizon Telescope.
