Roger Penrose of UK, Reinhard Genzel of Germany and Andrea Ghez of the US gained the Nobel Physics Prize

Stockholm:

Roger Penrose of Britain, Reinhard Genzel of Germany and Andrea Ghez of the US gained the Nobel Physics Prize on Tuesday for his or her analysis into black holes, the Nobel jury mentioned.

Half of the prize went to Penrose for exhibiting “that the final principle of relativity results in the formation of black holes”, and the opposite half went to Genzel and Ghez for locating “that an invisible and intensely heavy object governs the orbits of stars on the centre of our galaxy,” the jury mentioned.
