Facts About SUN


 The Sun is a star like all other stars, just one that is much, much closer to Earth. It alone has more than 99.8 percent of the mass of the entire solar system. Its mass is 1,000 times that of Jupiter, the largest planet. All the other planets and smaller bodies that orbit the sun amount to nothing more than bread crumbs by comparison.

The Sun and the rest of the solar system formed about 4.5 billion years ago from a cloud of collapsing hydrogen gas. When the hydrogen became dense and hot enough, the process of fusion — combining hydrogen into helium and releasing light and energy — began, and will continue for several billion years until the hydrogen is exhausted.
