It takes millions of years for light (a photon) to get to the surface of the Sun. Astrophysicists theorize that it takes that long because one part of the inside of the Sun looks like any other, so it is easy to get lost.

Solar winds cause the tails of comets to form, which is good because, otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to tell them from stinking asteroids…

      1. I’ve met two strippers. One was pretty normal. She didn’t look normal. She looked “wow!”, but she seemed pretty together.

        The other was crazier than a bag of snakes…

  1. The one tattoo I have is of that sun you have there. I feel ashamed now – I didn’t know it was going to destroy the earth in five billion years. The sun tricked me! What a jerk!

  2. Some physicists now think our sun was originally part of a binary system, but it’s partner got ripped away at some point in the past leaving the Sun to look after all the planets on it’s own. Because of that I now think of the Sun as a solo mum.

  3. …and over a million suns can fit into the black hole at the center of our solar system. I didn’t know the sun was 99/99% of the mass of our solar system, so that’s a new one. That’s sounds HUGE, but it’s not…our sun is “small” comparatively speaking, so there’s plenty of room to grow…and it takes a million years for those protons to escape because the density and gravity is so great the have to work their way out…like a tube of toothpaste that frozen…
