Nguyen, Vietnam – Level 3


The Sun is the Earth’s star. Without the Sun, we cannot live on Earth. The diameter of the Sun is about 1.392.000 km, more than 110 times of Earth’s. The core of the Sun is about 15,000,000 Celsius degree but the face is about 6,000 Celsius degree.

We cannot live on the Sun because it’s 100% made of gases. And if you get close to the Sun, you will be burned. Before the Sun dies, it will grow more than 100 times in size and it will burn all the planets in the solar system. Then, it will become smaller and smaller like white star. But it can still shine for about 2 billion years.

We cannot look at the Sun because it will make our eyes hurt.
