Brown dwarf roses

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

This peer reviewed research compares how similar brown dwarf stars are to gas giant planets.

Brown dwarf stars are gas giant planets, they have all the environmental features of gaseous super planets.

A brown dwarf by any other name would smell as failed

Only academic theory stops ultra cool brown dwarfs, young, old and all variations of these failed stars from being interpreted differently to what we have observed nature telling us is in fact true.

A type of planet, or all gas giants are brown dwarfs?

You could modify the theory to failed brown dwarf stars? Not our gas giants, silly, but those that compare similarly in all the other not failed star and planetary systems.

Brown dwarf stars are gas giant planetsDim objects called brown dwarfs, less massive than the sun but more massive than Jupiter, have powerful winds and clouds–specifically, hot patchy clouds made of iron droplets and silicate dust.

... Now, researchers have a new model for explaining how clouds move and change shape in brown dwarfs, using insights from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Giant waves cause large-scale movement of particles in brown dwarfs' atmospheres, changing the thickness of the silicate clouds, researchers report in the journal Science. The study also suggests these clouds are organized in bands confined to different latitudes, traveling with different speeds in different bands.

"This is the first time we have seen atmospheric bands and waves in brown dwarfs,"

... Just as in Earth's ocean, different types of waves can form in planetary atmospheres. For example, in Earth's atmosphere, very long waves mix cold air from the polar regions to mid-latitudes, which often lead clouds to form or dissipate.

The distribution and motions of the clouds on brown dwarfs in this study are more similar to those seen on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Neptune has cloud structures that follow banded paths too, but its clouds are made of ice. Observations of Neptune from NASA's Kepler spacecraft, operating in its K2 mission, were important in this comparison between the planet and brown dwarfs.

"The atmospheric winds of brown dwarfs seem to be more like Jupiter's familiar regular pattern of belts and zones than the chaotic atmospheric boiling seen on the sun and many other stars,"

... brown dwarfs can be thought of as failed stars because they are too small to fuse chemical elements in their cores. They can also be thought of as "super planets" because they are more massive than Jupiter, yet have roughly the same diameter. Like gas giant planets, brown dwarfs are mostly made of hydrogen and helium, but they are often found apart from any planetary systems. In a 2014 study using Spitzer, scientists found that brown dwarfs commonly have atmospheric storms.

Due to their similarity to giant exoplanets, brown dwarfs are windows into planetary systems beyond our own.

... "It is likely the banded structure and large atmospheric waves we found in brown dwarfs will also be common in giant exoplanets," Apai said.

Brown dwarf failures

Accepted scientific theories have got failed stars theory completely wrong, if successful predictions are anything to go by.

This has previously been predicted by and due to an alternative theory but these scientists conclusion adds to the increasing amount of astronomy that compares them as the same in all but name.
