Sir Roger Penrose wins Nobel Prize

The Institution would like to congratulate Sir Roger Penrose on his Nobel Prize for Physics and his work on Black Holes.

Sir Roger is well known to the Institution and back in 2001 he did a presentation to the IAP Symposium at Trinity House near Tower Hill.

A mentor of Stephen Hawking, Sir Rogers work on black holes is shared with Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez. He is a mathematical physicist from the University of Oxford, and demonstrated that black holes were an inevitable consequence of Albert’s Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

Computing is essential to the modern day modelling that scientists use to simulate the theories they have. It has driven a huge drive in the development of super computers and AI is now being developed to take things further.

It is great to British scientists being leading figures in thier fields.
