Brown dwarfs, objects that are two massive be considered planets but not massive enough to sustain nuclear fusion in their cores, were first predicted in the 1960s and detected for the first time in 1995. Some brown dwarfs have powerful auroras like those seen around the poles of Earth, Jupiter and Saturn caused by the interactions of a planet’s magnetic field and the electrically charged solar wind.

don't bother asking questions that won't be relevant for another thousand years, it's retarded
fyi assuming it eventually is a thing, space mining will be done anywhere but there anyway since even dwarf stars have a gravity well so deep it makes reaching orbital speed stupidly expensive

tl;dr noone will touch that shit

No, no it is not.
