In September 2009 I was awarded the Karl Schwarschild Prize and Medal by the German Astronomical Society. Traditionally, the recipient of the prize delivers the Karl Schwarzschild Lecture at the annual meeting of the Astronomical Society. The lecture is published in "Reviews in Modern Astronomy" and - as a refereed paper - in "Astronomical Notes". Below is the manuscript of my lecture in pdf-format.
