Science Factoid – Our Sun

21 Okt

Oh science. Our Sun is thought to be a 3rd generation star.  Meaning, its matter/gas is the remnants of matter from the supernovae of not one but two previous generations of stars, that no longer exist.  Thus Earth and we are made from matter from a star that exploded, then cooled collapsed, formed another star that exploded, then collapsed and that then formed our Sun.

The video just a relative size of our Sun verse other stars in our galaxy.

Universe, you crazy.
