Brown dwarf: A star-planet hybrid was accidentally discovered thanks to a gas shift

It appears to be experiencing a quasi-spherical mass loss.

Brown dwarfs, which are neither stars nor planets, were first introduced to us 27 years ago. Now it is time to meet a new one because astronomers have discovered a brown dwarf under the Ophiuchus Disk Survey employing ALMA (ODISEA) project.

ODISEA project, which is intended to study the entire population of protoplanetary disks in the Ophiuchus Molecular Cloud, a group of astronomers led by Dary Ruiz-Rodriguez of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) have investigated “SSTc2d J163134.1–24006,” which was initially identified as a faint stellar object.

The report was published by Cornell University on September 2.
