    Abstract

    We discuss Penroseā€™s mathematical methods proving existence of black holes. We calculate examples and predictions following stars closest to the middle of the Milky Way. We explain how two groups of astronomers led by Genzel and Ghez both found a black hole mass in the Milky Way, confirming calculations predicting the existence of black hole there.
