If you could meet the person who is the authority on brown and white dwarfs

    If you could meet the person who is the authority on brown and white dwarfs, what would you ask him or her? I don't know if this person actually exists, so this is more of a hypothetical question than anything else

    A brown dwarf is very different than a white dwarf, even though they both have the word "dwarf" in their name. Just so you know.

    Why aren't they called 'little stars' instead of 'dwarf stars'?
