@moiety Margaret Hamilton continues to amaze me. You can't go to the Moon without a computer, and she was in charge of that. Her work on Development Before The Fact is fascinating. And she coined the phrase 'software engineering'. A real pioneer.

Haha, not sure what’s so triple-A about DVD rentals 😂

Only to find out that there’s free coffee in the business lounge 😂

Buying coffee at Starbucks to feel like a commoner now that I’m a business class flying lady 💁🏻‍♀️.

Selfie, ec, boost it 

@ben think of it more as say 100MB/s data generation per dish. If they are receiving for six hours a night thats 2.16TB of data generated.

They where probably generating data faster than 100MB/s; I can't seem to find the link atm but I recently read an astrophysics paper on how one group were collecting and storing radio astronomy data in the GB/s.

From watching the press release they used the rotation of the Earth to their benefit as it enabled them to scan their "viewport" over the target and produce a much higher resolution image as a result.
@ben they had multiple radio telescopes around the world collecting ultra high resolution samples.

The disks were then flown from the telescopes to two central locations where the five petabytes of data was analysed to find the common wave form. That reduced the data set by 1/10,000 they then went through a few more steps until they had a few hundred TiB of data from which the 250KB image was generated.

@moiety

Everyone she goes through her hair I feel the tension in the air 💖

Two great : Computer scientist Katie Bouman and Margaret Hamilton.

Katie with her awesome stack of hard drives for image data 😍.

Margaret and her Apollo Guidance Computer source code 📚.

Katie Bouman, the scientist behind the first image of a black hole. Katie created an algorithm that made the image possible #WomenInSTEM #womensart t.co/anjif88j52

I saw people freaking out about the first picture of a black hole but no one mentioning Katie Bouman, who made it happen.

It’s a two hour flight within Europe. So it was quite cheap. It comes with lounge access which is nice. Had a super stressful day yesterday so I feel like I could use this.

I just bought a business class ticket on an airplane–me, a normal person!
