Summary
Discover the fate of solar mass stars after they exhaust their nuclear fuel. The galaxies are teeming with these dim "white dwarfs" that pack the mass of the Sun into a sphere roughly the size of Earth. Venture into quantum theory to understand what keeps these exotic stars from collapsing into black holes, and learn about the Chandrasekhar limit, which determines a white dwarf's maximum mass
