Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to 3 Scientists for Work on Black Holes

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Next came the physics. It's winners can boast they share an honor with Albert Einstein and Marine Pierre Curie Alex, tell us about this year's winners. So there are three winners this year for the Physics Prize. Goes to Suraj, penrose, who's a physicist and mathematician? He's one of the most prominent scientists in the UK. He's almost ninety years old. He's a permanent and everything from very mathematics to cosmology to material science. He writes puzzles. He's he's a real polymath genius and it's about time he wanted to Nobel prize. The other half of the Nobel prize goes to you Andrea Gez who is a professor of Astro Physics at the University of California Los Angeles and Heart Kansal he's an astrophysicist at. The University of California Berkeley and together the three of them win full increasing understanding of black holes. So Roger Penrose created some mathematical tools in the sixties that built on Albert. Einstein's general relativity the theory of gravity in the universe and several Japan rose created a way of using general relativity to predict black holes in the universe. So how they might actually form and then Andrea gas and reinhard denzil independently lead teams starting in the nineteen ninety s to track the orbits of Stars. Around. Sort of an object that sits in the middle of the Milky Way, our home galaxy, and there they were attempting to show that the object at the middle of Galaxy was indeed a black hole and they proved that with over twenty years of measurements
