3 Win Nobel Prize for Physics for Discoveries About Black Holes


What Happened:

  • On Tuesday, scientists Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez were awarded the Nobel prize for physics for their discoveries about black holes.

  • Penrose was awarded the prize "for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity."

  • Genzel and Ghez were awarded "for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the center of our galaxy."

  • Said the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, "Penrose, Genzel and Ghez together showed us that black holes are awe-inspiring, mathematically sublime, and actually exist."
