[Gizmodo] Never-Before-Seen Video Shows Fire Raining On the Sun - Page 7

post #61 of 78
I've always wondered why we call our sun "The Sun" and haven't given it a proper name like every other sun has that we've discovered. We should call it something. Like... like "Fat Momma" or "Glorious Inferno of Doom."

Space stuff has always made me feel small and insecure, but still fascinates me! Like now sitting at my computer with a roof over my head makes me feel secure, then soon as i think of space and we are whizzing around at an incredible speed - 65000 mph. Head under the covers redface.gif

This truely is some REMARKABLE stuff! Iam curious how nasa and others are guessing our has has around 6 billion years left before it turns into a red-giant? You have to woner how long before that will humanity be extinct,if for some strange reason we do make it (doubt it) we are all in for some HOT summer nights lol!This kind of stuff really makes me feel..........SMALL lol

I say we go classical like the planets and name after the Greek/Roman gods like, Apollo, Helios. We could do Norse like our days of the week and call it Freyr!

It still is.

No one can know what is currently happening 93 million miles away sooner than 8 minutes, not even NASA.

This is not what a red giant is.

It's going to be so gradual that no one will be able to define a hard cut off between main sequence and red giant stage.

Just because we won't know about it till 8 minutes later doesn't mean that it didn't happen when it happened.

The Sun's luminosity and diameter has been gradually increasing nearly since it's inception, and Earth will be uninhabitable billions of years before the Sun is considered a red giant.



Most wouldn't consider it a red giant till the dramatic radius increase and temperature decrease around 11 billion years of age, but next to nothing will be alive on this planet at 7 billion years age.

thank god for this post

OP why not just link straight to nasa instead of gizmodo? you could download the vid from there.

Just because you don't find it interesting, doesn't mean others will feel the same way. If you personally don't find it interesting, why bother posting?

And I linked to the gizmodo article, because that was the article that I found while browsing the news on my phone.

You will see many magnetic eddies like this video where the plasma is pulled down. Any video of the sun should have at least a few, but maybe not in this resolution.

I would write a reply, but Blameless said it perfectly

I think you mean Star. And we named our Star, The Sun wink.gif

And I have no words for the video, speechless!

Quote:
The English proper noun Sun developed from Old English sunne (around 725, attested in Beowulf), and may be related to south. Cognates to English sun appear in other Germanic languages, including Old Frisian sunne, sonne, Old Saxon sunna, Middle Dutch sonne, modern Dutch zon, Old High German sunna, modern German Sonne, Old Norse sunna, and Gothic sunnō. All Germanic terms for the Sun stem from Proto-Germanic *sunnōn.

The English weekday name Sunday is attested in Old English (Sunnandæg; "Sun's day", from before 700) and is ultimately a result of a Germanic interpretation of Latin dies solis, itself a translation of the Greek heméra helíou. The Latin name for the star, Sol, is widely known but is not common in general English language use; the adjectival form is the related word solar. The term sol is also used by planetary astronomers to refer to the duration of a solar day on another planet, such as Mars. A mean Earth solar day is approximately 24 hours, while a mean Martian 'sol' is 24 hours, 39 minutes, and 35.244 seconds.

The more you know!

I think "Glorious Inferno of Doom" is too drastic of a name.

Even though the Sun has the capability of destroying us, one has to remember that it is also the reason why you, me and everything on this planet exists.

It's a bringer of both life and death. It needs to have a neutral name.
