It is a young star. It is an old star. It has iron oxide atmosphere. It doesn’t have an iron oxide atmosphere.
If you were researching and trying to figure out what a brown dwarf star really is it would be really difficult. As a lot of old information is being restated even though we know it is not true. You see, the old theory is that brown dwarfs were young stars composed of hydrogen. However, the new universal measuring stick to determine a brown dwarf is the presence of lithium and visibility in the infrared spectrum.
The reason this topic is relevant to today is because many theorists claim that our sun has a binary twin that may be a brown dwarf.
The video below hopes to clarify and cleanup some of the disinformation and misunderstanding regarding this mysterious object. And although, by his own admittance, the video producer uses the words “heavy mass” his disclaimer explains that the stars are heavy mass with respect to size only and of course magnetics.
Being visible in the same wavelengths as interstellar helium, seeing the presence of lithium, observing very fast rotations, most astronomers agree that these findings are more consistent with that of a collapsed star rather than a new star.
The video below seeks to simplify and clarify not only the nature of these mysterious and invisible objects and it also seeks to explain why relevant information has been slow in getting out.
