Carlos Manuel Varsavsky

Carlos Manuel Varsavsky, Jewish Argentine astrophysicist (Buenos Aires 28 April 1933 – 01 March 1983)
Predicted the abundance of molecular hydrogen in interstellar clouds (confirmed later)

His doctoral thesis about atomic transitions in astrophysics was a standard work for decades
