The Chandrasekhar the mass of the sun; any white dwarf with less than this mass will stay a white dwarf forever, while a star that exceeds this mass is destined to end its life in that most violent of explosions: a supernova.
Subrahmanyam Chandrasekhar (October 1910 – August was an American astrophysicist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics for key discoveries that led to the currently accepted theory on the later evolutionary stages of massive stars
Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was one of the greatest scientists of the century. He did commendable work in astrophysics, physics and applied mathematics. Chandrasekhar was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in has discovered Chandrasekhar Limit.
S Chandrasekhar Jayanti. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar (October 19, 1910 – August 21, 1995). S Chandrasekhar was an Indian astrophysicist who was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics with William A Fowler. His mathematical treatment of stellar evolution yielded many of the best current theoretical models of the later evolutionary stages of massive stars and black holes. The Chandrasekhar limit is named after him. "I have one advantage here in the United States. I have enormous freedom...
Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, is a Noble Prize winning Astrophysicist, who played a key role in our understanding of the structure and evolution of stars. Chandrasekhar limit, which specifies the maximum mass of a stable white dwarf star, is named after him to honour his contribution. He correctly predicted the existence of black holes and white dwarfs long before their observational discovery. Via @TheBetterIndia
