Universal Facts Regarding The Sun

The Sun is a star located at the center of the solar system. It is the most outstanding and largest feature seen and contains about ninety eight percent of the total solar systems mass. Its rotation varies approximately at twenty five days at the equator and thirty six days at the poles.

It has a diameter of 1,392,000 kilometer and is 109 times the total size of Earth. The Sun is divided into three major parts, and is made up of hydrogen mass and the rest is helium and other types of gasses. The Sun orbits the galactic core approximately 25,000 light years and makes a complete revolution every 250,000 years.

Inside the Sun, there are 3 basic elements which are a Core, Radiative and Convective zones. The centre is called the core, and a great energy is made here through a process that is referred to as nuclear fusion. This energy is then transferred to the closest zone called the Radiative zone. The Radiative zone makes up eighty five percent of the Sun’s radius.

The Convective zone is the part just below the Sun’s surface and covers about fifteen percent of the surface of the Sun. Energy is transported by a bulk motion of gas, and this is a process called convection.

The Photosphere which is the visible layer has a temperature of approximately 6,000 degrees Celsius. It always seems molted as a result of the turbulence created by energy eruptions.

The photosphere is made up of photons that break out into the surface, and that is why it’s called the Sun’s surface. It has a thickness of about five hundred kilometer, and cannot be seen using the bare eyes. It is gassy in nature and hot.

Next to the Photosphere is a region called the Chromosphere. The energy emanating from the core, passes through all the way to the Chromosphere. The hydrogen clouds forming at the top is called Faculae and makes sunspot directly at the top.

Studies show that the Sun has been active for the past 4.6 billion years and will keep burning for another five billion years or more. It also indicates that the Sun will start fusing helium at the end of its life into heavier elements and start to swell and grow so large to swallow the Earth. It will collapse after a billion years to what is known as white dwarf, and may take up to a trillion years to completely cool off and fade into what is called a black dwarf.
