As most of you all know, brown dwarfs are considered the failed stars of our universe. Well NASA has found six failed stars that are so "cool" that you could stand on them and not be burnt to a crisp!


"The brown dwarfs we were turning up before this discovery were more like the temperature of your oven," says Davy Kirkpatrick, a WISE science team member at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech. "With the discovery of Y dwarfs, we've moved out of the kitchen and into the cooler parts of the house."


These dwarfs stars, known as Y dwarf stars, are the coldest members of the dwarf family.


So far, WISE data have revealed 100 new brown dwarfs. Of these, six are classified as cool Y's. One of the Y dwarfs, called WISE 1828+2650, is the record holder for the coldest brown dwarf with an estimated atmospheric temperature cooler than room temperature, or less than 80 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius).




Here is what a Y dwarf star would look like if you were to see it close up. Keep in mind it's just the concept art.

Good, now that they found the coolest stars....Why don't they find the comet that has soooooo much discussion on here....Elenin, planet X, Nibiru....Whatever you want to call it....FIND IT PLEASE

Anyways on topic....I would not even know how to answer your question, but I always wanted to hit a golf ball in space, so that would be what I would want to do on the "cool stars" if I could stand on it!! I would just hope it doesn't slice, like my swing on earth...

NASA easing population into Brown Dwarf Acceptance Today.

Looks like MSM is starting to get the masses ready for the "big one".

I'd feel the need to queue up the Star Power music from Super Mario Brothers. Then proceed to run and jump around!

You got that from the discovery of a new star? People have been discovering new stars for as long as humans have existed.....

and quit talking like Fred Sanford...This is not the big one....Elizabeth will just have to wait...(Yeah...random sanford and son reference)

absolutely brilliant info, but as to the question 'what would you do if you could stand on one?' i'm going to be pedantic and go for... be crushed into the space occupied by a fraction of my body currently... mass is still huge!!! sorry... I'm in one of those moods today

what would you do if you were able to stand on the surface of a star?


Now that would really be something seeing they are made of gas.

They are developing deniability as to why they did not tell us sooner when the big one is too big to hide...or when the false flag is ready to be revealed.

I'm not going to tell you what to believe and all but what are you supposed to do about it ?
If Nibiru is coming, what the hell are you going to do ?

Touche, I did overlook that part.


Regardless the idea of being close to a star without burning up presents numerous routes to explore. Would you agree?

gonna have to refresh my knowledge on what the difference between a star and planet is obviously...Why isn't this called a planet...hmm

Excellent question, I'm wondering the same too. So I did a search and found a similar article that mentions this:


Brown dwarfs help astronomers study star formation and the atmospheres of planets like Jupiter. Their atmospheres, similar in composition to the gas-giant planets, are often easier to observe because brown dwarfs are isolated in space, away from the light of more brilliant, parent stars.

Astronomers originally chose the term "brown dwarf" because they didn't know what colors these stars would be if we could see them, and brown isn't a real wavelength of light. Scientists now know that some brown dwarfs would seem reddish or magenta to the eye, but they aren't sure what color Y dwarfs would be. The purple color shown in the illustration above was chosen mainly for artistic reasons.


Since dwarf stars aren't massive enough to fuse atoms at their core, one could argue that they operate like gas-giants planets do. I think the key difference is that dwarfs cool off and emit infrared light.

One day astronomers may hold a conference, like with Pluto, and merge dwarfs stars in with the gas-giant group of planets. Who knows.

Am I mad? Not at all. I have some of the thickest skin you will see here
( Thanks for the laugh though)You seem pretty threatened that I dared to disagree..... Even went as far as to use all caps to yell... I find that cute.

Do I know anything? I know that you cannot prove your claim.
Go ahead. Do it
Prove your claim... Show me what you "know". I am not the one saying anything...You made a claim.I expect you to prove your claim... If you can't, Then you are saying "BS".

Go ahead.I am waiting...Everyone is waiting....


I will not just take your word.... I disagree. If you want anyone to believe your speculation,you have to back it up.It is not BS that we have been discovering new stars for as long as humans have existed..... To suggest that we have not discovered a dwarf star before is laughable at best ( Again, thanks for the laugh)

There are 2 billion stars in the milky way alone... and we discovered all of them!
www.universetoday.com...

There,I proved my claim.... Yes,we have been discovering stars for a very long time...That is not BS. Now you prove yours...Go ahead. I dare you. For the record,your link, saying that another star was found, proves me right as well. So thanks.... Prove your claim now.

By the way.... feel free to give me as many thumbs down as you want...No one will take them seriously coming from some one yelling and freaking out,making insane claims.


Bottom line... I know a lot more than you.

Calm down, open your mind... but not too open... Your brain will fall out.... You wont last long if you can't handle people disagreeing with you.... calm down... get over yourself and get thicken up that skin of yours. ATS is the best of the best.... and when you make a claim you will be challenged by everyone.... You have to bring it or move on....

If you can't.... GLP is that way



We are waiting.

ahaha, nice. Yeah.... I wonder that... How can people just blindly believe crap they read on some 13 year olds blog on the internet? Does anyone do any research on their own anymore?

Then they come here and expect us to also blindly accept it as well... Then they get freaked out when they realize that we don't do that here...

Pics or it didn't happen.... not just an internet meme here







anyway yeah. Still waiting to see the proof that NASA is going to use this discovery of yet another new star( Like it is a big deal!) to ease us into the "big one"?

Yeah.... perfect sense.

Here you go.

The difference is based on two things.

1. Do they have nuclear reactions that burn hydrogen at the core?

Stars do, planets don't.

2. How did they form?


Stars form when a cloud of gas, out in a nebula or other region of interstellar space, collapses under the influence of gravity. Planets, on the other hand, form when material in the disk around a pre-existing star begins to condense around rock/ice cores.


Hope that helps.

And if some how, any of you are still under the impression that dwarf stars have never been discovered before and that this is something new...

theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com...
news.discovery.com...
www.universetoday.com...


They are just a few....in the past few years.... Do a simple google search for Dwarf star discoveries, for more.

Yes,it is cool that we found another one. But this discovery of a new one is no more special than any others....and NASA is not using it to ease us into anything...Aside from the fact that they found another dwarf star....

That is fact...Sorry to disappoint a very select few of you.


Good day.
