Processes in each of the On Earth we experience this energy three layers, or zones, of the Sun work together to convert as warmth and light, or sunshine. the thermonuclear reactions into heat and light. 34 Structure and Physical Features of the Sun Moving outward from the core, the next layer is the radiative zone. Energy from the core takes hundreds of thousands of years to travel through the radiative zone. Why does it take so long? Even though this radiation is traveling at the speed of light, it has to zigzag through very dense plasma, which greatly slows down its passage.

He named this force gravity. Thanks to Newton’s insights, we now know that the power of gravity is what made the birth of the Sun possible. 5 billion years old. By studying the way other stars are born, they have come up with a reasonable explanation for how the Sun was created. For starters, imagine a time billions of years ago when there was no Sun. Where a brilliant star would one day shine, there only By observing the behavior of other nebulae, such as the Carina Nebula, scientists can figure out how stars and solar systems are formed.
