The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences today announced that it has decided to award the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez.

The Academy said one half of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Roger Penrose and the other half jointly to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez.

Roger Penrose won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on black hole and the general theory of relativity.
In its citation, the academy said Roger Penrose was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity.”

Meanwhile, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez, who have jointly won the second half of the prize, have been awarded “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy”, the academy said.
