What is happening inside the sun that allows us to see it?
Inside the Sun - in the core - energy is produced. This keeps the Sun hot, producing the radiation which we see. Inside the Sun - in the core - energy is produced.

Is the sun hot or is the inner core?
I'm not sure what you mean to ask, but the sun is hotter than the core of the earth and the surface of the sun is hotter than the core of the sun. Um well the whole entire sun is hot the inner core is aprox. 27,000,000 degrees fahrenheit and the outer surface of it is hotter than the suns core because its deep inside (the core) ...
Asked in Astronomy
Why do thermonuclear reactions in the Sun take place only in its core?
Because only in the core of the Sun is the pressure and temperature high enough to allow hydrogen to fuse. ...
Asked in Planet Neptune
Is Neptune cold or hot?
Neptune is very cold on the outside, but deep inside the planet, it's hot! The pressure at the core of Neptune is several million times greater than the pressure at Earths surface.Neptune's core is hotter than the sun. The heat inside Neptune supplies energy for strong winds. The winds on Neptune may be the fastest in the entire solar system. ...
Asked in Stars, The Sun, Nuclear Fusion
Does nuclear fusion occur at the surface of the sun or in the core?
Fusion takes place in the core, where the temperature and pressure are much higher, which is necessary for fusion. ...
Asked in Thunderstorms and Lightning, The Sun
Is the outside of the sun hotter than the inside of the sun?
Yes. The inside of the sun is hotter. The energy that powers the sun originates from nuclear fusion in its core, which is heated to about 25 million degrees. By contrast at the surface the sun has a temperature of about ten thousand degrees. ...
Asked in Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Plate Tectonics
Does the sun support the process of plate tectonics?
No it does not, the molten core inside the Earth is what drives plate tectonics. The Sun has nothing to do with the process. ...
Asked in Physics, Nuclear Energy, Stars, Nuclear Fusion
Why does nuclear fusion work inside the sun but not Jupiter?
The sun is much bigger and composed of hydrogen, and the gravitational pressure at the core is enough to set off fusion. Jupiter is composed of heavier elements, though I think mainly gaseous, which don't support fusion. ...
Where does nuclear fusion occur in the sun and how does it travel to the rest of the solar system?
well it occurs in the core of the sun, and it travels because it is shot out of the sun because it has too much pressure. ...
