Cloud Star

Pictured above is an image of a recently discovered Cloud Star.  Although theoretically impossible due to their low density, the Cloud Stars are ready for display and discussion at the beta level.

Early speculation has determined that these Cloud Stars are not actually stars in the normal sense as their surface temperature is relatively quite low.  While they do emit a significant amount of microwave and infra-red radiation, it is considered to be at a level which is not harmful to human life and in fact may be very complementary to it.

A Cloud Star can best be described as a low density energy emitting gravitational field (LDEEGF).  Within the cloud cosmic rays and other forms of radiation common in space are greatly reduced in the same way that Earth's atmosphere shields us from these dangers and makes space suits unnecessary.

Since Cloud Stars have such a strong resemblance to an atmosphere without a planet, it has been suggested that it may be possible to build space stations there or even inhabit the surface of small planetoids that are already there with a minimum of effort since the environment is much more sheltered and much less inhospitable than the lunar surface or that of asteroids in ordinary space and therefore life support systems would be less complex and less expensive to provide.
