Google celebrates discovering how stars die

in #discoveries7 years ago

The celestial stars have their own lifecycle, like organisms, that begin with blocks of gas and dust and evolve and change over millions or billions of years until they eventually die.

This process is fundamental to the study of astrophysics, where much of this course is known to the American Indian scientist, Sabramanin Chandrasekhar, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in partnership with William Fowler, for their work on the theory of "building and developing stars".

Google Doodle celebrates the world-famous Chandra of India, which reached the most famous discovery before the age of 20.

Chandra, now known as Chandrasekhar limit, traveled to Cambridge to study what details happen to the stars after consuming all the fuel and death.

If the star is less than a mass of the sun by about 1.4 times, it will collapse in a thing called a white dwarf (the remains of the nucleus is hot and very dense). If the mass of the star exceeds 1.4 times the Sun, it will explode or fall into a black hole.
This theory was not the most popular at first, and it was a source of irony for Sir Arthur Eddington, one of the most prominent astrophysicists of the time, at a meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1935.

But in the end, Chandra's work continued until he won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983.

One of NASA's satellites, which monitors x-ray emissions from hot parts of the universe, was named Chandra, where he died in 1995 four years before the moon was launched into space.
