How could the sun be burning in space if there is no air?
The sun and other stars don't burn oxygen, they burn other gases. that's what a star is, a big ball of gas. It burns these gases, which is also what is used to classified the stars into Main Sequence stars, Giants, Dwarfs, etc. The sun and other stars don't burn oxygen, they burn other gases. that's what a star is, a big ball of gas. It burns these gases, which is also what is used to classified the stars into Main Sequence stars, Giants, Dwarfs, etc. from the answer on the top.. the sun does not burn oxygen... is eats up the oxygen and make carbon dioxide.
The sun is can be over 1,000,000 degrees. It is basically a large hydrogen bomg I outer space thathas been burning for 1,000,000 years and will countinue burning for 1,000,000,000 years.The gravity on the sunwould be enough too kill you instantly. But people have walked on the sun. George Washington was the first.
Well, there isn't air, A.K.A oxygen, in space. To what scientists know there is nothing in the emptiness of space except for matter which are things like earth the sun and other planets. air is only on earth inside of the atmosphere, where life is being supported by it. Air is a precious life source that is ONLY found on earth.
The distance in between the Earth and the Sun is 93000000 miles. In space the temperature in the sun is 10 times that on Earth. The sun produces such incredible heat energy that it is able to reach Earth. The heat is much less here than it would be if we were closer to the sun. The sun creates its heat by burning the gasses that make it up.
Take your pick... Suffocation (there's no air in space) Severe heamorraging as the cavities and blood vessels expand and rupture. (Space is a vacumn) Freezing. (It's very cold in space) Assuming you could survive all of that, the radiation from the sun would eventually kill you. Quite quickly if there happen's to be a star (like our sun) nearby that's going through a period instability; coronal mass ejections, solar flares etc..
Space is full of extremes. Stars burn with an intense heat, our own sun burning at around 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit at its surface. The sun is so hot that sometimes even we can't bear it, despite being 93 million miles away! Our sun isn't particularly hot, either. The sun is an average star, while some stars burn at about 72,000 degrees Fahrenheit. But space isn't all stars and heat. Most of space is empty, and…
Sound must have matter to travel through - we are used to hearing sound that travels through air. But there is no air in outer space. We have heard sound that travels through water, but, there is no water in outer space either. In fact, outer space consists of a vacuum . . . not a floor cleaner, but a condition in which there is no matter - no air, no water, no nothing. So…
It could be described that way, yes. However, some clarifications are in order. "Burning": It is very hot. But its energy comes from nuclear reactions, not from a chemical burning. "Gas": It is actually a plasma, which is considered a different state of matter than a gas. Informally, it could be called a gas.
a regular lightning bolt is x3 hotter then the sun.Now if ur wondering how the sun is gas that burns in outer space that doesnt break air but lightning is an eletrick bolt that is sudden breaks air and hits ground.And the sun is in outer space which is deadly cold but the sun is heated from cold like if u put ur hand in ice water i believe.
Sound can travel as long as there is something for it to travel through. This could be a gas (such as air), a liquid (such as water) or a solid (such as a metal). In outer space there is no air for the sound to travel though, so astronauts can not talk with each other unless they use a radio. Radio waves and light waves can travel through space, that is why we are able…
