New Horizon Prize in Physics awarded to scientists chasing mysterious black hole photon spheres



Two scientists have won a $100,000 prize for describing the structure and a way to detect mysterious black hole photon spheres. These enigmatic structures form at the edges of a black hole, and could reveal the underlying physics that govern the most extreme objects in the cosmos.

Alexandru Lupsasca, of Vanderbilt University, and Michael Johnson, of Harvard University, won the New Horizon Prize in Physics “for elucidating the sub-structure and universal characteristics of black hole photon rings, and their proposed detection by next-generation interferometric experiments.”
