Roger Penrose Nobel Prize Physics
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said Sir Roger Penrose will receive half of this year’s prize “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity”.
Goran K Hansson, the academy’s secretary-general, said German Reinhard Genzel and American Andrea Ghez will receive the second half of the prize “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy”.
The prizes celebrate “one of the most exotic objects in the universe”, black holes, which have become a staple of science fiction and science fact and where time even seems to stand still, Nobel committee scientists said.Sir Roger proved with maths that the formation of black holes was possible, based heavily on Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
Sir Roger detailed his studies in 1965, but it was not until the 1990s that Mr Genzel and Ms Ghez, each leading a group of astronomers, trained their sights on the dust-covered center of our Milky Way galaxy, a region called Sagittarius A*, where something strange was going on.
