- It is the discovery of one of the most exotic phenomena, says the Nobel Committee.
The winners for the 2020 Nobel Prize for physics have been announced and the winners for the prestigious award are Roger Penrose for black hole discovery, and Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez for discovering “a supermassive compact object at the center of our galaxy.” The Nobel committee while announcing the three laureates for Physics this year applauded for discovering one of the most exotic phenomena in the universe, the black hole.
To explore Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, the ingenious mathematical method was invented by the Nobel Prize winner, Penrose. The theory leads to the formation of black holes, those monsters in time and space that capture everything that enters showed Penrose. While the other two discovered an extremely heavy and invisible object which governs the orbit of stars at the galaxy’s center.
The highly prestigious award comes with a gold medal and an amount prize of 10 Million Swedish Kronor. On Monday winners for physiology and medicine were declared and the winners were Harvey J Alter and Charles M Rice and British-born scientist Michael Houghton for discovering the liver-ravaging hepatitis C virus.
