Are brown dwarfs failed stars or super-planets? Astronomers find first signs they can also form like a planet

Brown dwarfs fill the 'gap' between stars and the much smaller planets. But how they originate has yet to be fully explained. Astronomers may now be able to answer that question. They discovered that the star v Ophiuchi in the Milky Way is being orbited by two brown dwarfs, which in all probability formed along with the star from a gas and dust disk.
