Polish-born astrophysicist Bohdan Paczyński (b. 1940), at Princeton University since 1982, is known for his theoretical work on gamma ray bursters---he was an early proponent of their being at cosmological distances---and for leading searches for gravitational lensing by low-mass stars and substellar objects.
