Discovering Dark Stars – Dr. Adam Burgasser

PART 1

Dr. Adam Burgasser of UC San Diego tells about the surging science of brown dwarfs—the failed stars that blur the line between planets and stars. This talk was delivered on Jan. 24, 2012, under balmy Hawaiian night skies at The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawai’i to an enthusiastic audience of Friends of the W. M. Keck Observatory.
