Brown Dwarfs_- The Missing Link between Exoplanets & Stars.

Society Meeting

Thursday, 20th January 2022 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Virtual Meeting

Brown dwarfs are substellar objects that are not massive enough to sustain nuclear fusion of ordinary hydrogen (1 H) into helium in their cores, unlike a main-sequence star. They have a mass between the most massive gas giant planets and the least massive stars, approximately 13 to 80 times that of Jupiter.

Peter Jalowiczor is an amateur astronomer living in Rotherham. He is primarily known for co-discovering four exoplanets at home using data released to the public by the University of California's Lick-Carnegie Planet Search Team. At University he completed research confirming that k=2 (the delta effect) for comets from work on Halley's Comet. Since 2017 he has been involved in research on brown dwarfs - objects between exoplanets and stars.

He has had four books published: two about football and two about WWII. He is also the founder of a football club, known as the Polish Millers. Registered in the Polish Football league.
