As some of you have heard, the Nobel Prize was given this year 
for discoveries in astrophysics. Among the winners is Sir Roger Penrose - 
for black holes (here is the summary:

Here is a photo of him (on the right) that I took 10 years ago, in the 
newly built physics institute building with the foyer that has so-called 
"Penrose tile" on the floor:
