The Life of the Sun
Monday 13th January 2020
Start time : 19:15

Speaker : CAA

With the Sun being closer (on the 5th January) to the Earth than at any point during this century, it's time to look at our local star. We follow the history of our sun from its birth in a molecular cloud, its 10 billion years as a G type star fusing hydrogen into helium to its chaotic death as it goes nova. Fortunately, our sun is less than half way through its nuclear fuel before it becomes a red giant and swallows up Mercury, Venus and maybe the Earth too.
