“At such temperatures we expect the brown dwarf to have properties that are different from previously known brown dwarfs and much closer to those of giant exoplanets — it could even have water clouds in its atmosphere,”
said Michael Liu of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy.
CFBDSIR J1458+1013B is the coldest (100C) and furthest (75 million light years ) brown dwarf to date.
Essentially brown dwarfs are unable to create a nuclear reaction, setting them apart from being stars.
And though CFBDSIR J1458+1013B is 75 million light years away, the idea of water clouds and bearable surface temperatures existing elsewhere only motivates telescopic gazing scientists to continue their search into parts unknown.
