30 Interesting Facts About Sun
A star is located in the centre of the Sun’s solar system, around which the Earth and other components of the Solar System revolve. Sun is the largest body in our solar system and its diameter is approximately 13.99 million kilometres which is almost 10 times more than the Earth. This powerful reservoir of energy is mainly a huge circle of hydrogen and helium gases. Through the process of nuclear merger, the Sun produces energy in its centre. Only a small part of the energy released from the sun reaches the Earth, out of which 15 per cent is reflected in space, and 30 per cent of water is used to make steam. Its strong gravitational force keeps the Earth and other planets wandering in different classes. Do you think you know everything there is to know about Sun? Think again!
