So Long, Proxima Centauri

Analog Fact Article by Kevin Walsh

A tad bit dull, but still an interesting discussion of Brown Dwarfs, the mission of the new WISE orbiting telescope, and what sorts of stars and planets WISE is capable of discovering. Also included is a lot of information about the potential for life on such planets, and what sort of conditions would be needed to get life-supporting planets in orbit around a brown dwarf.
