+ - Do 'Ultracool' Brown Dwarfs Surround Us?->

Submitted by

astroengine writes "The recent discovery of two very cool "T-class" brown dwarfs in our cosmic neighborhood has prompted speculation that there may be many more ultracool "failed stars" nearby. Not only are these objects themselves very interesting to study, should there be many such brown dwarfs spanning interstellar space, perhaps they could be used as "stepping stones" to the stars."
