And it’s not the first time that this is happening. It has happened four times already and the ancients left clear records of them. They also left a warning for the next event for those who have eyes to see it and ears to hear.
The Earth will be moved from its nominal orbit. As Sun is swelling it also begins to lose its mass. It will lose mass more rapidly that its loosing in this moment. The logic is simple – getting less massive means less hold or pull on the Earth. In other words, the planet will start to move further out into a larger orbit.
Its going to be a kind of race between growing Sun (growing heat from the star) and Earth moving little away from that fire that is getting to hot.
For life to develop wherever carbon organics are present, water seems to be an essential ingredient. Water is found throughout the Solar System and in the interstellar clouds within the Milky Way galaxy. It is also present in some galaxies.
Can you please tell me in plain language what a Red Giant is?
The short answer is that towards the end of a star’s life, the temperature near the core rises and this causes the size of the star to expand.
The long answer is that stars convert hydrogen to helium to produce light (and other radiation). As time progresses, the heavier helium sinks to the center of the star, with a shell of hydrogen around this helium center core. The hydrogen is depleted so it no longer generates enough energy and pressure to support the outer layers of the star. As the star collapses, the pressure and temperature rise until it is high enough for helium to fuse into carbon, i.e. helium burning begins. To radiate the energy produced by the helium burning, the star expands into a Red Giant.
The second lightest and second most abundant element. The typical helium atom consists of a nucleus of two protons and two neutrons surrounded by two electrons. Helium was first discovered in our Sun. Roughly 25% of the mass of our Sun is helium.
The lightest and most abundant element. A hydrogen atom consists of one proton and one electron. Hydrogen composes about 75% of the mass of the Sun, but only a tiny fraction of the Earth.
The DNA nebula is about 80 light-years long. It’s about 300 light-years from the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. The nebula is nearly perpendicular to the black hole, moving out of the galaxy at a quick clip-about 620 miles per second (1,000 kilometres per second).
Other relevant data: Sun’s surface temperature is nearly 10 000 degrees Fahrenheit or nearly 5537 degrees Celsius. For energy the Sun converts 700 million tons of hydrogen into 695 million tons of helium – every second.
The Solar system is formed somewhere around 4.5 billion years ago and it’s not a stationary system. Our solar system is spinning, flying through space at ~134 miles per second. Turning in circles as part of wast collection of stars and star systems.
There are more the 300 billion stars in this collection called Milky Way galaxy. As far is known, there are more then 6 billion of those stars with planetary systems like ours.
Our solar system, is located on the very edge of outern arm of Milky Way. That is why we see the Milky Way galaxy from a side on the night sky. The Milky Way is only one of 125 billion galaxies (that we know about) that make up the visible Universe.
