Katherine Bouman, a 29-year-old researcher who worked on the crucial algorithm that led to capturing the first-ever image of a black hole, has become the target of online sexist trolls seeking to discredit her work on the historic project.

“Together, we all make each other's work better; the number of commits doesn't tell the full story of who was indispensable.”.
