The 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics - Revealing the Darkest Secrets of the Universe
The 2020 Nobel prize in physics has been awarded to three physicists, Roger Penrose, Andrea Ghez and Reinhard Genzel, for their discoveries of "the darkest secrets of the universe," - namely, the birth of black holes and the presence of a supermassive black hole in the center of our Milky Way galaxy. Bard physicists, Hal Haggard and Shuo Zhang, will present the stories behind this year's physics prize. In the first half of the discussion, Hal Haggard will introduce Roger Penrose's theoretical work on black hole formation as a robust prediction of General Relativity. In the second half, Shuo Zhang will introduce Andrea Ghez and Reinhard Genzel's observational work on the discovery of a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
