CENTRA and the Physics Nobel Prize 2020

Oct. 07, 2020

The Physics Nobel Prize 2020 was given to black holes. The laureate Roger Penrose of the University of Oxford got half the prize for his work that provided profound mathematical advancements on the theory of black holes. The other two laureates, Reinhard Genzel of the Max Planck Institute in Garching, and Andrea Ghez of the University of California in Los Angeles, got the other half for the further astrophysical understanding of the supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy.

As one of the main areas of research of CENTRA is black holes, CENTRA would always be linked to this Nobel prize. But there is more, additional unforeseen events and circumstances have put CENTRA in the center of this Physics Nobel Prize 2020.
