Troll's Target Female Scientist




(Newser)
                                        

                                        Katie Boumann's rise to scientific stardom came with a downside: online trolls who claimed her work was really done by a man, CNN reports. The 29-year-old MIT graduate helped create the algorithms and imaging process for the first ever image of a black hole on Wednesday. Cue the Reddit, Twitter, and YouTube users who diminished their work or said Andrew Chael, a white male scientist on the project, what the real mastermind. One YouTube video was called "Woman Does 6% of the Work but Gets 1

00% of the Credit: Black Hole Photo," by NBC News, while Twitter and Reddit posts claimed Chael created "850,000 of the 900,000 lines of code that were written in the historic black-hole image algorithm! "
                                    

Enter Chael, who tweets that there are no "850,000 lines of code" -try "about 68,000 lines in the current software, and I do not care how many of those I personally authored." Chael adds that he is openly gay, another demographic underrepresented in STEM. Katie's leading role in our global team was invented, I felt that, "he tells CNN. Washington Post -a view fully supported by Boumann herself. "No one algorithm or person made this image, it requires the amazing talent of a team of scientists from around the globe," she writes on Facebook. (Read more black hole stories.)
