How big is the Sun compared to space?

How big is the Sun compared to space?

You could line up 109 Earths across the face of the sun, according to NASA. The sun’s circumference is about 2,715,396 miles (4,370,006 km). It may be the biggest thing in this neighborhood, but the sun is just average compared to other stars.

How big is our sun compared to other suns?

VY Canis Majoris has between 1,300 to 1,540 solar radii, which means its radius, is at least 1,300 times that of our Sun’s. Another star, KY Cygni, has between 1,420 and 2,850 times the radius of our Sun. UY Scuti has 755 solar radii, WHO G64 has between 1,504 and 1,730 times the radius of the Sun.

How many Earths can fit on the surface of the Sun?

1.3 million Earths
So, how many Earths can fit in the Sun? The answer is that it would take 1.3 million Earths to fill up the Sun. That’s a lot of Earths. The Sun makes up 99.86% of the mass of the Solar System.

What is the biggest sun in the universe?

The largest known star in the universe, UY Scuti is a variable hypergiant with a radius around 1,700 times larger than the radius of the sun. To put that in perspective, the volume of almost 5 billion suns could fit inside a sphere the size of UY Scuti.

Will our sun ever end in a black hole?

No. Stars like the Sun just aren’t massive enough to become black holes. Instead, in several billion years, the Sun will cast off its outer layers, and its core will form a white dwarf – a dense ball of carbon and oxygen that no longer produces nuclear energy, but that shines because it is very hot.

Is there a bigger sun than ours?

A monster version of our sun has been found, the largest known member of the family of yellow stars to which our sun belongs. The whopper sun emits light in similar wavelengths as our sun but its diameter is over 1300 times larger.

Can planets have 2 suns?

Can a planet really have two suns? While many things about Star Wars are purely fictional, it turns out that planets orbiting two or more stars is not one of them. In 2011, NASA embarked on the Kepler mission, exploring the Milky Way galaxy to find other habitable planets.
