Day 4 of the ARG has been solved

Wikipedia says the floor on a brown dwarf is about 12x Jupiter's mass, at least by today's definition; it's a slippery concept.

Well I'd guess that the "adding more mass to make a brown dwarf" theory is dead (or at least endangered) then. Might as well make your own planet if you're going to bring in that much extra material.

Still, getting Jupiter to cook a little warmer could create a little habitable zone around it even without its igniting like the Sun; warm enough, maybe, to melt Europa's ice shell and turn it into a water world.

True this is.

-- Steve needs to consider that more, particularly in light of the rather nasty radiation bands close in to Jupiter.

That's ok, we'll just designate that world for the Vorcha.
