How to use dwarf in a sentence?

  1. Shakespeare:

    Get lost, you dwarf, you weed, you scrap, you acorn.

  2. Peter Williams:

    Even though brown dwarfs are completely covered in clouds, they're too far away for us to pick out individual clouds like we do on planets within our solar system. But we can still measure how long it takes for a group of clouds to do a lap around the atmosphere ; as clouds come in and out of view they change the brightness of the planet, this lap time depends on two things : how fast the brown dwarf itself is spinning, and how fast the wind is blowing on top of that.

  3. Jim Green:

    The New Horizons mission has taken what we thought we knew about Pluto and turned it upside down, the New Horizons mission's why we explore -- to satisfy our innate curiosity and answer deeper questions about how we got here and what lies beyond the next horizon. Related : Spacecraft achieves flyby of Pluto, then calls home September NASA, which is discussing a slew of Pluto discoveries at the 47th Annual Meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences in National Harbor, Md. this week, highlighted the ‘ cryovolcanoes ’ as a key finding. Geologists on the New Horizons team combined images of Pluto’s surface to make 3-D maps that indicate two of Pluto’s most distinctive mountains could be ice volcanoes. In its statement September NASA explained that the ‘ cryovolcanoes ’ may even have been active in the recent past. The two candidates are large features on the dwarf planet’s surface measuring tens of miles across and several miles high. Related : September NASA releases first Pluto flyby images.
