2020 Nobel Prize In Physics announced. Andrea Ghez, Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel won this year Nobel Prize in Physics division for block hole research. The Nobel Prize organization press release today 6th October 2020 over Nobel Prize In Physics 2020 for Black hole and the milky way’s darkest secret. Also, through this press release mention brief info about research.
About Roger Penrose:- Born 1931 in Colchester United Kingdom. Ph.D 1957 from University of Cambridge. UK Professor at University of Oxford, UK. He his used ingenious mathematical methods in his proof that black holes are a direct consequence of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Einstein did not himself believe that black holes really exist, these super-heavyweight monsters that capture everything that enters them. Nothing can escape, not even light.
About Reinhard Genzel:- born 1952 in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe, Germany. Ph.D. 1978 from University of Bonn, Germany. Director at Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Garching, Germany and Professor at University of California, Berkeley, USA.
About Andrea Ghez:- born 1965 in City of New York, USA. Ph.D. 1992 from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA. Professor at University of California, Los Angeles, USA.
Both Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez each lead a group of astronomers that, since the early 1990s, has focused on a region called Sagittarius A* at the centre of our galaxy. The orbits of the brightest stars closest to the middle of the Milky Way have been mapped with increasing precision. The measurements of these two groups agree, with both finding an extremely heavy, invisible object that pulls on the jumble of stars, causing them to rush around at dizzying speeds. Around four million solar masses are packed together in a region no larger than our solar system. (Source) www.nobelprize.org.
