Summary
"How are stars made, and what makes them so darn hot? We take a short trip around the Sun (being careful not to get too close) so we can answer these questions. In the process we explore dark sunspots, bright solar flares, orangey prominences, and the invisible solar wind. Through the eyes of a space observatory called SOHO, we can view incredibly energetic spots and flares as they actually occur. We peer inside the sun to see how it moves like a giant pot of boiling soup. We can even sail in space on the power of sunlight using a huge plastic sheet as big as a small town. Getting to know the Sun helps us to understand how other stars work too. We have to understand the sun today because eventually it will burnout, swell up and swallow our entire planet. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts."--Container
