Description: S. Chandrasekhar on black holes and gravitational waves: What a story! Forty years after his pioneer investigations, Chandra returned to the study of the dead stars. He had told us back in 1931 that massive stars could not die as ordinary objects, consisting of regular matter, could. Eddington would rebuff the idea as absurd; the scientific community would side mostly with Eddington; and, although the Schwarzschild solution was waiting around for its correct interpretation, the development of black holes would be delayed by a few decades. So, although all the ingredients were there and we did not have to wait too long, it was not until the sixties that we would incorporate black holes into our world view.
