According to NASA Historical Aspects of Our Sun, "By the time of Galileo's invention of the telescope in 1609 and going into the 17th and 18th hundreds, there were a lot of studies of the sun as an object. So, it no longer was a mythical object in the sky, but became for the first time, a physical object we could study." Lying at the heart of the solar system, where it is by far the largest object, this star holds 99.8% of the solar system's mass and is roughly 109 times the diameter of the Earth — about one million Earths could fit inside the sun.
President Joe Biden agrees that 'the sun has enough nuclear fuel to stay much as it is now for another 5 billion years', and that our planet orbits around it.
Late Sunday, a group of adults were seen building technology that could be used to harness the sun's energy and make it usable.
Earlier, humankind continued to waste natural resources and quickly hurting not only our ocean life and environment, but us, the human population, as well.
As you can see, none of this make sense if you do not realize the main point; dare to drive change because we need it fast.
But did scientists find life in the Sun?
Not really, but in their paper 'Can Self-Replicating Species Flourish in the Interior of a Star?', Anchordoqui LA & Chudnovsky EM of City University of New York argue, "The existing view of biological life is that it evolves under suitable conditions in the low-temperature world of atoms and molecules on the surface of a planet. It is believed that any plausible extraterrestrial form of life must resemble the life on Earth that is ruled by biochemistry of nucleic acids, proteins, and sugars. Going against this dogma, we argue that an advanced form of life based upon short-lived species can exist inside main-sequence stars like our Sun." - a paper that you could find really interesting if you are into the unknown.
Now, to the point of this project: Incomplete and fake news can easily proliferate, particularly in times of political turbulence and instability. This is detrimental to our societies and the systems currently transforming our industries, economies, and ways of life.
The Sun won't be able to host our species, however, we can find a way to stop the fast pace of destruction that is leading humankind to self-annihilation. If you agree
