What Could An Explosion On the Sun Do Here On Earth?

The sun is essential plant food that’s heating our planet, but we don’t often think about the wild things happening on and below its surface. In this episode of #Untold, a new #YouTubeLearning series from ACS, PBS, and YouTube, we talk about those wild things, and how they can affect us all the way down here on Earth.

And by the way, if you’re curious about the relative sizes of the Earth and the Sun, and how we calculated that 1.3 million Earth-volumes would fit inside the Sun, check this out: http://www.suntrek.org/sun-as-a-star/sun-and-earth/comparing-size-sun-and-earth.shtml.
