Did you ever wonder how hot the sun is? On a sunny day, if the temperature rises more than 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) we start feeling hot and we are at a distance of 149 million kilometers (93 million miles) from the Sun! Which means the Sun would actually be a 1000 degrees hot? Oh no, its much more than that the surface temperature of the sun is nearly 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit (5538 degrees Celsius)! What does it take to stay that hot? The sun burns up 700 million tons of hydrogen and 695 million tons of helium in one second to create the amount of energy to keep it burning at this temperature.35 degrees to 50 degrees Celsius we can all tolerate but more than that we cannot tolerate. Which means that had we been any closer to the Sun we would all have burned to death.
