Brown Dwarfs Are Probably Much More Common In The Milky Way Than Previously Believed

Brown dwarfs are strange things. They are in the middle ground between planets and stars. A star is defined as an object massive enough for helium to fuse into hydrogen into its core, while a planet is too small for core fusion to occur. It seems a...
