A Portrait of Our Star, the Sun

Lecture no. 12 from the course: The Life and Death of Stars

A Portrait of Our Star, the Sun

Taught by Professor Keivan G. Stassun | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Explore the nearest star, the sun, in an imaginary voyage through its fiery photosphere down to the center. Discover the sun’s rich inner structure, with strata ranging from the extremely hot and dense core—denser than solid lead—to the more rarefied outer layers.
