This is a Hubble Space Telescope image of young brown dwarf 2M J It has a companion object at the 8 o'clock position that is estimated to be times the mass of Jupiter. In the right panel, the light from the brown dwarf has been subtracted to provide a clearer view of the companion object. The number of dwarf planets in the Solar System is unknown. Estimates have run as high as in the Kuiper belt and o in the region beyond. However, consideration of the surprisingly low densities of many dwarf-planet candidates suggests that the numbers may be much lower (e.g. at most 10 among bodies known so far).

After an introduction, written by Viki Joergens, reviewing Shiv Kumar's theoretical prediction of the existence of brown dwarfs, Takenori Nakano reviews his and Hayashi's calculation of the Hydrogen.
Brown dwarfs were originally called "black dwarfs." Now, that term is used for the final stage of the stellar evolution of a main sequence star, a white dwarf that.
brown dwarf is a failed star. A star shines because of the thermonuclear reactions in its core, which release enormous amounts of energy by fusing hy-drogen into helium.
For the fusion reactions to oc-cur, though, the temperature in the star’s core must reach at least three million kelvins. And be. Brown dwarf stars are object more than about 13 times the mass of Jupiter but lower in mass than a true red dwarf star, and can fuse deuterium and sometimes lithium, but never reach that threshold.

Despite their name, brown dwarfs would appear magenta or orange-red to the human eye if seen close up. Credit: William Pendrill (CC BY). The brown dwarfs in question are notable because of their extreme lack of iron.
In fact, a typical brown dwarf would have up to 30 times more iron and other metals than we find in either. The first brown dwarf was discovered inand, as of the summer ofthere are more than known brown dwarfs. Initially, brown dwarfs were given spectral classes like M10 + or “much cooler than M9,” but so many are now known that it is possible to begin assigning spectral types.
