No, not that kind...


NASA spots chilled-out stars cooler than the human body


NASA has known of these celestial bodies — called brown Y dwarf stars — for a great long time. But now, a satellite has spotted a particularly chill Y dwarf that holds the new record for the coolest star at just 80 degree Fahrenheit.

Researchers were surprised to learn that several were within 40 light years of our own solar system, just a stone's throw in terms of our galaxy.



Things that make you go hmmmm...

Life can exist easily in 80 degree F conditions. Stars have the same material as the the rest of the universe, therefore its logical to assume carbon and even oxygen and liquid h2o are possible. Plant life hmmm, I bet its light 24/7 but like a nightlight on the ground.
The possibilities are mind boggling. Cool find.....literally 13.gif chuckle.gif

freedictionary def. of a star

A self-luminous celestial body consisting of a mass of gas held together by its own gravity in which the energy generated by nuclear reactions in the interior is balanced by the outflow of energy to the surface, and the inward-directed gravitational forces are balanced by the outward-directed gas and radiation pressures.

How can it be self-luminous if it's only 80F? Gases that burn that cool? 13.gif

Good question Shadow, but I really dont have a good answer dunno.gif These are pretty exotic objects, we may be looking at something thats going to throw our standard model of physics right out the door, as demonstrated recently when the so called god particle failed.

Physics is once again coming into question, we can only learn from this.

For every question answered it raises two more, such is the nature of human understanding.

I was kinda thinking about the "Researchers were surprised to learn that several were within 40 light years of our own solar system..." part.


Like I said the other day, even with all the satellites and professional and amateur astronomers out ther, they are still only able to monitor a very small percentage of space. Remember, the further away you get the more there is to search.

Nibiru?

How do they know its not a gigantic hollow vessel? 80 degrees F would probably be quite comfortable to a cold blooded intelligent species. Okay, probably not, but...This discovery brings up a lot of major questions, and is probably one of the more interesting discoveries in recent memory.
