While listening to this podcast I learned that Chandra discovered a lot about white dwarfs. Chandra had a very interesting, unconventional life. Coming from a famously scientific family, he grew up in Punjab, which is now Pakistan. He came up with the maximum mass of a white dwarf star while traveling from India. He graduated college in India at age nineteen and then went on to graduate school in Cambridge. Chandra had a very successful career and was a Nobel Laureate.
