Title: Dear CA #58 – It’s Full Of Stars!
Organization: Cheap Astronomy
Description: Star Stuff.
What’s the Gaia mission all about?
Gaia is mainly about astrometry – though it may also pick up a few exoplanets, test relativity and find some as-yet undetected comets and asteroids within our solar system.
What do you make of Scholz’s star?
Here at CA we sometimes just get sent a link with the expectation that we’ll offer some comment on the general subject area – and that’s just fine with us. So, firstly Scholz’s star is a binary system composed of a red dwarf and a brown dwarf, the combined mass of which is only about 15% of one solar mass.
