In the year 2020, the winner of the prestigious Nobel Prize in the field of Physics has been announced. This year the award has been given to Rogan Penrose, Reinhard Ganzel and Andrea Ghez. Half of the prize money will be given to Penrose and half of the remaining half will go to Reinhardt and Andrea.

Nobel Prize 2020:

This time this prestigious award has been given to Roger Penrose for the discovery that the formation of a black hole is a strong predictor of the general theory of relativity. At the same time, Reinhard Genes and Andrea Ghez have been given the award for the discovery of a supermassive compact object in the center of our galaxy.

Discoveries about black holes:

In this regard, a release from the Nobel Prize stated that Roger Penrose used simple mathematical methods in his proof that black holes are a direct result of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. However, Einstein himself did not believe that black holes actually exist.

In January 1965, Penrose proved that black holes could actually form and described in detail that they possessed singularities or singularities in which all known laws of nature were abolished. His article is considered the most important contribution to the general theory of relativity after Einstein.

Reward of 11 lakh dollar for winners:

Secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences Horan Hanson announced the award. The award carries a cash prize of more than $ 1.1 million with a gold medal. The award is given in the name of Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel.
