@turdburglar: yea np

@handimanner: Everything you've written is correct that I`ve seen. Yet I have a question from what you said "the sun has NO radioactive materials," but if the Sun is a population 1 star (3rd generation) wouldn`t that mean there is the presence of metals such as Uranium and Thorium and therefore daughter isotopes like Radon? And are you saying that your belief is that all, or just added helium, is the result of the accretion disk? Just asking questions, not attacking.

I could watch stuff like this all day.
The disappointing thing about having a finite lifespan, is that I will miss all the fascinating discoveries to be made after I am gone.

If they're going to the sun, I hope they have the good sense to go at night.

We are starlight.....
Everything you see was created inside a star. The sun is a 3rd generation star. It has heavy materials like iron and gold that early suns lack. Also, just so you know, the sun has NO radioactive materials. Helium is the result of radioactive decay, however (my belief) is that helium - as well as other nova debris is collected centrifugally. The basic solar disk accrues material - some makes planets - with the heat generated by accretion starting the solar furnace.
