Press release: Planet-like object may have spent its youth as hot as a star

WISE J030449.03-270508.3 belongs to a class of cold, extremely low mass objects, known as Y dwarfs. Only about twenty of those are known, and this one shows a peculiar spectrum suggesting that it may be metal-poor and/or older than previously identified Y0 dwarfs. It was discovered and studies by an international group of astronomers, including myself.
