Brown dwarfs are not quite massive enough to ignite nuclear fusion, yet larger than known planets. <a href="http://www.space.com/24467-brown-dwarfs-failed-stars-explained-infographic.html">See how brown dwarfs work in this SPACE.com infographic</a>.

Brown dwarfs started out the same as ordinary stars, collapsing from giant nebulas of dust and gas. Most brown dwarfs are not quite massive enough to sustain a nuclear fusion reaction at their cores

43,000 Galaxies on a Map / the most complete map of our local universe to date. It took more that ten years to create, has 43,000 galaxies and extends out 380 million light years from the earth. The 3D coordinates of each galaxy was recorded so the raw data could potentially be used to build a realistic 3D model of the universe.

#Astronomy: An international team of astronomers, led by David Sobral from Leinden University of the Netherlands used three telescopes located across the globe to study the trends in star formation, from the earliest stars that made up the first galaxies in the universe, up until now. Their findings suggests something quite shocking .. almost 95% of stars that will ever live have already been born!

"Shockwaves of Star Formation - Galaxy M106 Galaxy M106 has mysterious “invisible” spiral arms that only become visible when you observe its X-rays. Astrophysicists believe that there is a supermassive black hole at the center of M106. It is theorized that this supermassive blackhole is jetting out high-energy particles into the galaxy’s shockwaves and causing these high energy emissions."

Shockwaves of Star Formation - Galaxy Galaxy has mysterious “invisible” spiral arms that only become visible when you observe its X-rays. While the spiral arms propagate like shockwaves around they create bursts of star formation with.

Some 60 million light-years away in the southerlyconstellation Corvus, two large galaxies are colliding. Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundreds of millions of years. But the galaxies' large clouds of molecular gas and dust often do, triggering furious episodesof star formation near the center of the cosmic wreckage
