How do you imagine the end of the world? It might not be the brightest of topics, but admit it, you’ve thought about it in your spare time. It’s just one of those things that randomly come to your mind.

Scientists have found out that all life on Earth is going to be wiped out by the Sun — and pretty soon. The Sun has an incredibly big influence on everything on Earth, and it isn’t limited to just light and warmth.

Did you know, for example, that even a 5% increase in the size of our star would make our planet way different from what we have now. There’s no telling how exactly the Earth would look, but it would definitely not be the planet we know.

What we wouldn’t be able to witness already is a 10% expansion of the sun. But what about when it will happen?

SUMMARY: 

  • What do we know about the Sun? It’s basically a huge generator: it gives us light, warmth, and even an endless supply of safe energy, which we’re currently mastering. 
  • You see, as stars go, our Sun is quite young: it’s only 4.6 billion years old, and it’s now in the phase when it’s most stable.
  • But like any other star, the Sun is constantly changing. The energy it gives off results from burning, and that can’t be safe by any accounts.
  • The energy the Sun gives to our planet heats the surface and the atmosphere alike, and it drives the weather all across the globe. As weird as it sounds, there would simply be no rain without the sun.

And much more. Watch the video and see why Bhutan is dream destination for many people.
