About how far away is the sun from
Earth?
About how many Earth’s could you fit
inside the sun?
About how long does it take for the sun’s
light to reach Earth?
What two gases make up most of the sun?
About how many years left does the
sun have until it runs out of fuel?
These are the darker, cooler
regions of the sun’s surface.
The center of the sun is called this.
This is the region right outside the
outer layer of the sun. It’s where
all the solar flares happen.
These bright “ribbons” of energy
stretch off the sun’s surface and
eject energy into space.
This field around the sun constantly
changes, causing prominences and
violent swirling.
This nuclear process is how the sun
generates its energy.
This force is what gives the sun its shape
and causes the atoms to fuse in the sun’s
core.
During the nuclear reaction in the sun’s
core, this element is created.
This is the lightest element in the
universe and is the main fuel for stars.
This weapon creates a mini “sun”
for a split second, causing massive
destruction.
When the sun emits charged particles,
they enter the Earth’s atmosphere near
the magnetic poles and create
shimmering lights called this.
A massive solar storm would damage
what kinds of devices on Earth?
This is the scientific term for the Northern
Lights.
What is the scientific term for the
Southern Lights?
In what year was the “perfect solar storm”?
This ancient Greek astronomer and
scientist believed the universe was made of
four elements.
This cosmological model described a
universe that revolved around the Earth.
This scientist was the first to challenge
the ptolemic model.
This Italian scientist confirmed
Copernicus’ theories with the use of
the telescope.
This was the name of the final shell,
according to Aristotle.
