And Now, Another Useless Fact



The sun is 330,330 times larger than the earth!

To get an idea how big it is... it is about 238,000 miles to the moon. The Sun is 865,000 miles in diameter. So the orbit of the moon is about half the diameter of the sun.

Thankfully this huge nuclear furnace doesn't pose near the danger that a small percentage of CO2 does in heating our planet.
