A question for scientists

The sun is:

  • roughly 15 million degrees celsius
  • turns around 4 million tons of Hydrogen into energy evey second
  • approximately 109 times wider than the Earth
  • 2×1027 tons heavy

My question is: if it's so great and so full of energy, why can't it be arsed to get up before half seven? Lazy fucker.

  1. The sun is around 4.5 billion years old and will remain in its current state for about another 5 billion before doing the whole temperamental star -> red giant -> white dwarf thing. We can equate this to going a bit senile (aged, say, 45 in human years) so the sun is still in its very early twenties.

    This explains the phenomenon perfectly, as you'll see in a joint article in next week's New Scientist and Stereotyping Older People magazines.

  2. Ah, I see. It all makes much more sense now. How come none of the websites I looked at told me that?

  3. Cos it's only very recent research that only a very few have been given access to. I heard about it through my work in the Solar Physics group on my project. I can only assume that Mr Young has people on the inside ;)
