M. Richards: Several talks today have expressed fuzzy boundaries to describe the objects called stars. Is the following classification correct? Are stars restricted to objects that have masses greater than 0.089 solar masses and begin making energy with hydrogen burning? Do we include the stellar remnants: the white dwarfs and neturon stars? Do we include the brown dwarfs because they burn lithium or deuterium. We know that planets are not in this group since they have no energy production.
