"The Chandrasekhar limit of around 1.4 solar masses is the theoretical upper limit to the mass a white dwarf can have and still remain a white dwarf. Beyond this mass, electron pressure can no longer support the star and it collapses to an even denser state – either a neutron star or a black hole."
