While the asteroid belts give birth to the asteroids and meteors that can impact the planets or fall into the sun, the Oort Cloud gives birth to comets. At least 100,000 times dimmer than Earth's Sun, the brown dwarf is the faintest object ever seen orbiting another star. One of these brown dwarfs seems to have only about 3% as much iron as our Sun. Now, an international group of researchers led by Carina M. Persson of Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden reports the finding of a new massive brown dwarf, apparently another representative of this desert. (NASA) – With the help of citizen scientists, astronomers have discovered two highly unusual brown dwarfs, balls of gas that are not massive enough to power themselves the way stars do. Six citizen scientists are listed as co-authors of the study. In the sky it can be located in the vicinity of the Sagittarius constellation. The object is so big it may have large satellites orbiting it.

In the span of 22 years—from 1985 to 2007—the object had grown by 16 percent. Observations conducted by Persson's team found that EPIC 212036875 b orbits its host approximately every 5.17 days at a distance of about 0.06 AU from it. This despite the fact that no historical record of a supernova observation exists cataloging such an object or explosion during the mid-1800s. Officially it’s named “G1.9.”. The size of the brown dwarf is larger than Jupiter but smaller than a low mass star. Scientists call the newly discovered objects “the first extreme T-type subdwarfs.” They weigh about 75 times the mass of Jupiter and clock in at roughly 10 billion years old. report, by Tomasz Nowakowski , Now some new evidence has revealed there may well be such an object—or something similar—so the volume of the conspiracy enthusiasts will no doubt ratchet up. Meanwhile back at NASA, astronomers are ignoring the Spaniards’ data. An international team of astronomers has found a new brown dwarf, one of the most massive objects of this type discovered to date. Get weekly and/or daily updates delivered to your inbox. According to the study, EPIC 212036875 b is about 51 times as massive as Jupiter, but approximately 17 percent smaller than our solar system's gas giant. These values imply the brown dwarf's mean density at a level of around 108 g/cm3. G1.9 is only visible in infrared wavelengths from the intense heat it radiates. About 150,000 people have participated so far. He didn’t recognize it for what it was and it was tagged as the remains of a supernova. Scientists expect very old exoplanets would have a low metal content, too. Signup for Space Coast Daily News Email Alerts! They assume that this brown dwarf most likely formed due to gravitational instabilities in a protoplanetary disc.
