To date, scientists have poorly divided the mass of gas giants and brown dwarfs due to
From 2 thousand Only 400 brown dwarfs studied are satellites of stars, while they are usually more than three astronomical units from their star, since they hardly get closer to form - the parent star takes away gas and dust for itself.
The brown dwarf EPIC 212036875 b is located in such a zone, called the “desert of brown dwarfs”. The object was discovered using the Kepler orbital telescope.
EPIC 212036875 b makes one turn aroundits spectral-type star F7 V, which is about 1.12 times heavier than the Sun, has a radius 1.4 times that of the sun, about 5.17 Earth days, and is only 0.06 astronomical units from it - about 9 million km The temperature of the brown dwarf is about 1.1 thousand degrees Celsius.
Scientists believe that EPIC 212036875 b was formed around F7 V due to gravitational instability in the outer part of the protoplanetary disk, and only later migrated to its current orbit.
