What is the sun made of?

Our Sun is the nearest star to earth.

It is made of a collection of burning gases, 92% of which is hydrogen.

The sun provides heat and light, the main ingredients necessary to sustain most life on planet Earth.

The sun is enormous! It would take 110 Earths strung together to be as long as the diameter of the Sun.

All the planets in our solar system receive light and heat from our sun. However, their distance from the sun determines how much they receive.
