Explaining Brown Dwarfs

An international team, led by scientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Planets, in collaboration with the University of Bern, has identified five objects that have masses near the border separating stars and brown dwarfs. Brown dwarfs are astronomical objects with masses between those of planets and stars. The question of where exactly the limits of their mass lie remains a matter of debate. So this findings could help the astrophysicist to understand whether they are dealing with a brown dwarf or a very low mass star.
