Originally formed from dying stars’ castoffs, the Sun is the Earth’s energy giver and is destined to keep burning for another five billion years. Professor Bill Chaplin from the University of Birmingham in the UK explains the solar reactions that make the sun shine.
- Looks at how the sun was formed.
- Examines what keeps the sun shining.
- Earth would be a frozen lump of rock without the energy created from our nearest star.
“The sun will have formed out of materials that were cast off from other stars.”
