Stars temperatures as warm as the Human Body

Scientists have discovered a star of 'cold' in the universe, where the temperature can be as hot as the human body.

As quoted from Softpedia, Thursday (08/25/2011), astronomers are studying the data collected by NASA telescope's Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), which found a number of types of the coldest star the universe. Space objects is estimated that the same temperature as the body temperature.

There are several types of cool stars in the universe, including stars, Little Brown. These things are so cold its temperature compared to normal stars, with temperatures of a few hundred degrees Celsius only.

Some of these celestial objects referred to as "failed stars", which means they are formed from hydrogen gas that do not develop naturally with success. The failure of the nuclear fusion process that makes the formation of stars are of low temperature.

In these studies, the new objects is known as a small star of Y. Astronomers have been searching for objects for years.

Through WISE, scientists were able to find six small stars, all within 40 light years from the sun.

This research leaders are members of the team WISE, Michael Cushing, based at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. JPL team set WISE mission for U.S. space agency (USA), Scinece Mission Directorate, which is also based on the NASA headquarters in Washington.
