Here Comes The Sun Hostile Worlds: Exploring Space

    • Astronomy

Our lives literally revolve around it. That big yellow ball in the sky - The Sun.

But what do we really know about El Sol? Is it just a big ball of gas and flame? Or is there more to it than that?

On this episode, Sarah and David venture into the Sun's corona, to meet with Dr. Andrea Cellarius. A very bright and flame-boyant scientist.

This is the first part of a two-part episode, guest written by friend of the show William J. Meyer. You can find William's own spectacular podcasts at Hostile Worlds merchandise Store (http://www.fireonthemound.com/)  too!

Things to Learn

What is a solar bathysphere?

What is the standard atmospheric pressure of the Sun, compared to Earth?

What is the radius, circumference, and magnitude of the Sun?

What is a CME, and how did one nearly wreck Earth back in 2012?
