DID YOU KNOW?

99.86% of the mass of our Solar System belongs to the Sun which itself is 73% hydrogen. The rest is mostly helium, oxygen, and carbon. The remaing things like metal and rock are but just a tiny fraction of a fraction of the material that remains.

Our Star, the Sun, is but one of hundreds of billions of observable stars in the universe.

Only a few stars out of those hundreds of billions are within 10 light years of our star.

Our Sun and Solar System are 4.6 billion years old with an apporximate 5 billion years of life left in our Sun.
