As the first-ever picture of a black hole was unveiled last week, the world reacted with excitement to an image of an orange ring of light, surrounded by the deep, black abyss. Scientist Katie Bouman, a postdoctoral fellow who contributed to the project, instantly became a hero for women in STEM as her image—clasping her hands over her face looking at the first black hole—made its way around the internet.
