Chandrasekhar limit

This limit, equal to 1.4 times the mass of the Sun, is the maximum mass that a star can have after exhausting its thermonuclear fuel and becoming a white dwarf, without becoming a neutron star or a black hole. The limit is due to the relativistic Fermi electron degeneracy pressure. It was proposed by the Indian S.Chandrasekhar.
