NASA`s WISE and Spitzer telescopes help discover coldest "brown dwarf" known

NASA`s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) and Spitzer Space Telescope have discovered what looks like the coldest "brown dwarf" known-a dim, star-like body that, surprisingly, is as frosty as Earth`s North Pole.

`Rare` brown dwarf discovery provides benchmark for future exoplanet research

A team of researchers have directly imaged a very rare type of brown dwarf that can serve as a benchmark for studying objects with masses that lie between stars and planets.

New celestial object blurs line between planets and brown dwarfs

A new celestial object, located nearly 500 light years away from the Sun, has challenged traditional understandings about how planets and stars form.

Brown dwarf `capable of giving birth to planet`

Brown dwarfs believed to be `failed stars,` by researchers, could have the ability to give birth to planets.

NASA telescopes capture weather patterns in brown dwarf

Astronomers using NASA`s Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes have probed the stormy atmosphere of a brown dwarf, creating the most detailed "weather map" yet for this class of cool, star-like orbs.
