This Star Is So Cold that You Can Actually Drink It

75 light-years away there's a star called CFBDSIR 1458 10b. I would call it Star Latte. See, Star Latte here is a brown dwarf star so cold that you can actually drink it.

In fact, it's the coldest star ever detected. Only 206º Fahrenheit (97º Celsius). That's about the temperature of a cup of fresh coffee. It wouldn't taste as good as coffee and you'll probably die trying to dunk your muffin in it, but it is that cold. For comparison, our own home star is about 5800K on its surface (9980ºF or 5526ºC).


Star Latte was discovered by Michael Liu and his team using the W.M. Keck Observatory and the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on the top of Mauna Kea, in Hawaii. While having ice-cold cocktails, I can only hope. [National Geographic]
