Caption

Illustration of a binary dwarf star system. A white dwarf star (background) is accreting material from a nearby brown dwarf star (foreground). As the white dwarf gathers material into a disc, gas begins to fall onto the white dwarf’s surface. This creates an atmosphere which is heated and begins to glow when nuclear fusion occurs.
