It contains 99.9 percent of the matter in our solar system and sheds hot plasma at nearly a million miles an hour. The temperature at its core is a staggering 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. It convulses, it blazes, it sings. You know it as the sun. Scientists know it as one of the most amazing physics laboratories in the universe. Now, with the help of new spacecraft and Earth-based telescopes, scientists are seeing the sun as they never have before, and even re-creating what happens at the very center of the sun in labs here on Earth. Their work will help us understand aspects of the sun that have puzzled scientists for decades. But more critically, it may help us predict and track solar storms that have the power to zap our power grid, shut down telecommunications, and ground global air travel for days, weeks, or even longer. Such storms have happened before - but never in the modern era of satellite communication. Secrets of the Sun reveals a bright new dawn in our understanding of our nearest star - one that might help keep our planet from going dark.

Our sun converts 4.5 million tons of mass every second into pure energy. That's the same as converting 45 of the world's largest aircraft carrier into pure energy every second. The total weight of all fissionable material of all nuclear weapons in the world that would be converted into energy if they all were exploded would be less than 1 ton, one 4.5 millionth of the sun's energy output in 1 second. It takes 10,000 to 170,000 years for all that energy being generated at the center of the sun to work its way out to the sun's surface, and it takes 8 minutes 20 seconds for that energy to reach earth. But only 0.0000001% (one 1 billionth) of the sun's energy ever reaches earth, all the rest is lost in all other directions.
