Andrew Chael is one of the scientists who helped to produce the famous image of black hole M87. He has taken to twitter to defend Kate Bouman who for some reason has attracted the most attention from the media for her part in imaging the black hole. A number of keyboard warriors have been bleating on about the fact that the media have been giving her rather too much credit for her role, although Bouman has, in all her comments so far, pointed out it was very much a team effort.
(1/7) So apparently some (I hope very few) people online are using the fact that I am the primary developer of the eht-imaging software library (https://t.co/n7djw1r9hY) to launch awful and sexist attacks on my colleague and friend Katie Bouman. Stop.
