    At 11-12 Times the mass of Jupiter that puts the projected mass for this particular brown dwarf in the region of ~1/90th-1/100th that of our dear Sol.

    Pretty sure that for differences in brown dwarf emission spectra, at least at a short logical inspection of the matter, it seems probable that one of the factors is definitely elemental composition of the mass. Similar to how metal rich stars present differently than metal poor stars.

    Differences in opacity due can arise from modest differences in chemical composition so this is quite reasonable.

    I forgot to write a passing thought.....

    Could objects like this have potential for originating life?

    Perhaps in the orbit of one. I am pretty sure the conditions inside a brown dwarf would be too thermally stressful for organic material to form and propagate. If life within one then perhaps something similar to the microbial lifeforms near thermal gas vents in the ocean.

    Well, to clarify, I was looking over the Wikipedia entry on brown dwarfs and their spectral types.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brow...ectral_class_T

    Some brown dwarfs are late sectoral class M, then in decreasing temperature classes L, T and Y. By the time we are in spectral class Y we are down to the temperature of a warm room, 300 K = 27 C = 87 F.

    Would that be surface temperature?

    Are all brown doors powered by deuterium fusion?
