This year's Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel, and Andrea Gheza for their joint research on black holes.

One half of the prize will go to Roger Penrose for showing "that the general theory of relativity leads to the formation of black holes" and the other half will be shared jointly by Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.”

The scientists received prize money of 10 million Swedish kronor (over 1,118,000 dollars – 112 International.)
