Dr. Marco Cavaglia, professor of physics, and Dr. Shun Saito, assistant professor of physics, will present a public lecture about the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, via Zoom. Their lecture is titled “Black Holes and the Milky Way’s Darkest Secret.

This year’s Nobel Prize was awarded to Roger Penrose “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity” and to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.”

The lecture is for a general audience. The physics department started its tradition of a public lecture on the Nobel Prize in 2003. For the Zoom link, please contact Saito at
