A Closer Look
Despite their diminutive name, most dwarf stars are quite normal main-sequence stars and come in a wide variety of sizes, formed from protostars with sufficient mass to begin the process of nuclear fusion. But there are other stellar and quasistellar objects called dwarf stars as well. Brown dwarfs are formed when insufficient mass accretes for nuclear fusion to take place; brown dwarfs thus never become proper stars. Other kinds of dwarf stars result from the further evolution of main-sequence stars not massive enough to become neutron stars or black holes (which form from the burned-out core of a supernova). The type known as a white dwarf is the remnant of a red giant star that has burned nearly all its fuel. The mutual gravitational attraction of its atoms, no longer counterbalanced by the outward pressure of burning fuel within, causes the star to collapse in on itself. After it contracts and blows its outer layers away as a planetary nebula, the red giant stabilizes as a white dwarf and slowly fades. Our Sun is of a size and mass that will probably cause it to evolve first into a small red giant and eventually into a white dwarf. Red dwarfs have a lower mass and luminosity than white dwarfs, and black dwarfs, if any yet exist, are even less luminous, no longer giving off any detectable radiation.
