Physics Nobel Prize 2020 for Black Holes

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2020 was divided, one half awarded to Roger Penrose "for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity", the other half jointly to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez "for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy." Our group is thrilled by this recognition of Black Hole science by the Nobel Committee and heartly congratulates Roger, Reinhard and Andrea!
