General Knowledge Sun

When it comes to our solar system, it's no secret that the Sun is a pretty big, well, star!

This enormous sphere of burning gas is the engine, anchor, and light bulb of our planet. It makes everything that we know on Earth possible. And yet, its own process seems sort of impossible.

How does a fire that huge burn in the vacuum of space? Why doesn't it need oxygen to burn?

A burning question!

In today's OWLconnected General KnOWLedge—our first new video in almost a year! Yay!—we're exploring the answer at the heart of this hot topic. Because how the Sun burns and how a campfire burns are two very different things. Are you ready to be enlightened?

Press play below and feel the warmth of a brand new General KnOWLedge!
