about sun
“About the sun? Let me tell you about the sun. It’s a big flaming ball of gas in the sky that’s been doing its thing for billions of years. It’s a pretty impressive star, but that’s all it is – just a star. It’s not the center of the world, no matter what the ancient Greeks thought. Sure, it’s the closest star to Earth and it’s the source of all life, but it’s not a god or anything like that. It’s just there, doing its thing. Here’s a fun fact: The sun is a main-sequence star, which means it’s in the same phase of its life as 90% of all stars in our galaxy. Pretty cool, huh? Also, the sun is made up mostly of hydrogen and helium, just like other stars. The temperature on the surface of the sun is about 5,778K, which is way hotter than the temperature on Earth. So, yeah, that’s pretty much it. The sun is just a star that happens to be close to Earth and provides us with light and heat. Nothing special.”
