Brown dwarfs are considered to be ‘failed stars’ in the sense that they are born with masses between the least massive stars (0.072 solar masses, M[circdot]) and the most massive planets (∼0.013M[circdot]); they therefore serve as a critical link in our understanding of the formation of both stars and planets. Even the most fundamental physical properties of brown dwarfs remain, however, largely unconstrained by direct measurement. Here we report the discovery of a brown-dwarf eclipsing binary… Expand
