So you've 'seen' the black hole. Now for the interesting bit – how all that raw data was stored • The Register

The black hole image released yesterday needed over a thousand helium-filled disk drives to record it.

Regular drives were tried and tested but failed due to air pressure at the high altitudes of the radio telescope sites.
That is indeed particularly interesting. SSDs were ruled out due to cost and capacity.

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.

I know I should report that black hole somewhere before it destroys the universe.
But it is so practical, as I don't need to take out the trash any longer

Meet Katie Bouman, the woman that rendered the image, as it appears on her screen.
