The Sun will not explode.

In about 4.5 billion years, our Sun will slowly cool and turn into a red giant, it's outer envelope will almost touch the Earth.

After about another million years, it will shed it's outer envelope, causing a planetary nebula What is left of our Sun, is a white dwarf about the size of the Earth, which will slowly radiate it's remaining heat into space for billion and billions of years.

No. Earth will likely be consumed by the sun in a few billion years but it will not explode.

The Sun will NOT explode - EVER. The Sun will start to die in about 4.5 to 5 billion years time.

It won't. The sun will eventually die when it runs our of fuel at its core, but it is not massive enough to explode.

If the Sun were to explode billions of years from now, it would wipe out the entire Solar System, planets and all. The Sun may never explode, however, due to its size.

No. The sun is not massive enough to go supernova.
