A Picture toward Understanding BHs and the Nature of Gravity and Spacetime
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2020 was awarded to Roger Penrose í░for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity,í▒ and Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez í░for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the center of our galaxy.í▒ A review of the awarded works presents us with an inspiring exploration history of more than 200 years toward understanding one of the most enigmatic objects in the spacetime, black holes (BHs), providing challenges to the most intelligent minds and the most advanced experiments of our time. These works are the multi-arts of astronomy, physics, mathematics, technology, and nature.
