The Sun Burning Out
Date: 1993 - 1999
Will the sun ever burn out and if it will do you know
when it will?
Yup. About 5 billion years from now, according to our best
theories of the way stars get older. The first thing it
will do is expand the outer surface of the star, probably to
close to the earth's orbit, which will be pretty much the
end of things here.
