[Professor in Indian Institute of Astrophysics]

What is Astrophysics?

R C Kapoor: "Astrophysics is a branch of space science that applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the birth, life and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe. It has two sibling sciences, astronomy and cosmology, and the lines between them blur."

How I got into Astrophysics?

R C Kapoor: "My inclination towards astronomy led to my graduation and then post graduation in Astrophysics. In 1971, I started my career and joined Observatory (now Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences, ARIES) at Nainital in observational astronomy. Then, in 1974 until 2010, I was with the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), Bangalore where I worked on various topics in relativistic astrophysics black holes, white holes, quasars and pulsars etc. His association with the institution continues. In 1980, I completed my Ph D from Agra University. I actively participate in popularization of astronomy and have also published research papers in peer-reviewed international journals and presented papers in national and international conferences. I have also published on the physical-chemical nature of bhasmas in the Indian Systems of Medicine."
