Shiv Kumar

Shiv was the first to write about the possibility of brown dwarfs ("failed stars" below the hydrogen burning limit, which he originally called "black dwarfs"), based on his calculations of stellar structure and electron degeneracy.


Taken at a workshop celebrating "50 years of brown dwarfs", held on October 21-24 2012, at the Max-Planck Society's Schloß Ringberg near Tegernsee, Bavaria, Germany.
