To understand how little we know about ourselves and the world, let’s remember that this year’s Nobel prize for physics was awarded for discoveries about black holes.

This subject is so complex and uncharted that even Einstein doubted the existence of black holes. But in 1965, ten years after the genius’ death, Roger Penrose published a groundbreaking scientific paper. In it, he produced the mathematics that showed how large stars collapse to form black holes. Which speaks to the idea that “the formation of black holes serves as reliable proof of the theory of general relativity”.

This discovery opened a new direction in the study of supermassive compact objects. But these objects continue to pose many questions, impelling further research. …
