She captioned the Facebook post: "Watching in disbelief as the first image I ever made of a black hole was in the process of being reconstructed".
BRUSSELS: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) post-doctoral student Katie Bouman, who isn't an astronomer, amazingly played a vital role in taking the first-ever photograph of a black hole.
The 29-year-old worked with MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the MIT Haystack Observatory and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics for the last several years, leading to the development of the algorithm.
Since the researchers had to deal with insufficient data from the supermassive black hole, Bouman developed an algorithm called CHIRP (Continuous High-resolution Reconstruction using Patch priors) which was able to put that sparse data to good use by filling in the gaps and producing the final image after extensive verification and tests.
I have an interest in how can we see things or measure things that are thought to be invisible to us. "It was quite spectacular", she told BBC Radio 5 live. Light gets bent and twisted around by gravity in a freaky funhouse effect as it gets sucked into the abyss along with superheated gas and dust, the AP reported. "We just expected a blob".
Dr Bouman became an global sensation with her name and image trending on Twitter in the hours after the revolutionary photo's release.
"The image shown today is the combination of images produced by multiple methods".
Kings fire Joerger; extend Divac
Considering Walton remains under contract with the Lakers, the Kings would need to receive permission to speak with him. One angle he might choose to take, according to a report from ESPN, would be to dismiss head coach Dave Joerger.
A global network of telescopes known as the Event Horizon Telescope project collected millions of gigabytes of data about M87 using a technique known as interferometry.
Scientists used Bouman's imagery algorithm and many others to piece together the picture.
How did her algorithm create the image?
At that time she had no real knowledge of black holes but brought with her extensive experience in computer science and electrical engineering.
The data captured from each telescope was stored on hard drives and then flown to three central processing centres in Boston, US, and Bonn in Germany.
"You're basically looking at a supermassive black hole that's nearly the size of our entire solar system", said Sera Markoff, professor at the University of Amsterdam, "and, in fact, that's part of the reason we can see it even though it's so far away". The internet's reaction to the image was also memed.
"No one of us could've done it alone", Bouman said.
In 2015, the Egyptian military killed 12 people using US -made helicopters, including Corley's boyfriend, in the western desert. Sisi last came the White House in April 2017 , marking the first time an Egyptian leader had visited in seven years.
Cela m'a appris à travailler dur, l'humilité, l'intégrité et le dévouement, rien que pour nommer quelques enseignements. La jeune femme a donc eu les deux jambes cassées en plus des deux rotules déboitées et de multiples ligaments rompus.
The redactions will be color-coded and accompanied by notes explaining the decision to withhold information, he said. Barr later said that although he did not have specific evidence of wrongdoing, "I do have questions about it".
However, the graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct. After eight hours, Trump had still not taken down his tweet boasting about the incorrectly reported approval rating.
The image is very similar to numerous artists' drawings through the years of what scientists believed a black hole looked like. The data from eight of those telescopes were collected on hundreds of hard drives and flown in to a central processing center.
Former Notre Dame and National Football League running back Cierre Wood has been arrested in Nevada for child abuse. CBS 8 in Las Vegas reports that Wood is facing 1st-degree child abuse or neglect charges , citing jail records.
Craig's lawyers said federal prosecutors in NY had declined charges, but they expected an indictment to be brought by the U.S. Attorney's office in Washington at the request of the Justice Department's national security division.
The order book for Aramco expanded from about $40 billion when the deal kicked off, people with knowledge of the deal said. And later in the bond market itself, where the Saudi government successfully raised debt this year.
In a regulatory filing, Uber said it will list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "UBER". Analysts consider building scale crucial for Uber's business model to become profitable.
Brexit extension: What has the European Union decided?
But they can't force her out of office until the end of the year, after she survived a no-confidence vote last December. Mrs May also told MPs that backing her deal would mean there was no need for European Parliament elections.
Israeli spacecraft crashes on surface of the moon
Mission control lost communications with the spacecraft when it was about 489 feet (149 meters) above the moon's surface. NASA , for example, spent about US$469 million in the 1960s on seven similarly sized Surveyor lunar landers.
Blue Jackets stun Lightning with 3rd-period comeback
Instead, it took place before the game, and while Columbus came out hitting, they also surrendered three first period goals. Patrik Laine scored late in the first period and Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots for the Jets, who host Game 2 on Friday.
Boeing CEO says 737 MAX software update working as designed
A Boeing shareholder is suing the company for allegedly hiding problems with its 737 Max jet to push its shares higher. The aviation giant said on Tuesday that it delivered 149 commercial airplanes, including 89 737s, in the first quarter.
