Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was an Indian-American astrophysicist who made significant contributions to our understanding of stellar evolution. Born on October 19, 1910, in Lahore, British India (now Pakistan), he was a child prodigy who excelled in mathematics and science from a young age.

Chandrasekhar studied at Presidency College in Madras before moving to the University of Cambridge in England to pursue his graduate studies. It was at Cambridge where he developed the Chandrasekhar limit, a breakthrough in astrophysics that determines the maximum mass of a white dwarf star before it collapses into a neutron star or black hole.

After completing his Ph.D., Chandrasekhar moved to the United States to continue his research at the University of Chicago. He eventually became a professor at the university and continued to make groundbreaking discoveries in the field of astrophysics.

Throughout his career, Chandrasekhar received numerous awards and honors for his work, including the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983. He was also a member of the Royal Society of London and the National Academy of Sciences.

Chandrasekhar passed away on August 21, 1995, leaving behind a legacy of innovation and brilliance in the field of astrophysics. His work continues to influence and inspire scientists around the world.
