110 times wider than Earth; 15 million degrees at its core; an atmosphere so huge that Earth is actually within it: come and meet the star of our solar system

Light takes eight minutes to reach Earth from the surface of the Sun. But its journey within the Sun takes hundreds of thousands of years. What is going on in there? What are light and heat? How does the Sun produce them and how on earth did scientists discover this?

In this astonishing and enlightening adventure, you'll travel millions of miles from inside the Sun to its surface and to Earth, where the light at the end of its journey is allowing you to read right now. You'll discover how the Sun works (including what it sounds like), the latest research in solar physics and how a solar storm could threaten everything we know. And you'll meet the groundbreaking scientists, including the author, who pieced this extraordinary story together.

I have had a lifetime interest in astronomy, albeit at an amateur level. In recent years I have got more fascinated by our Sun, and found that there are relatively few books on the market that cover this object, compared to many astronomical bodies, at least at the level understandable by a non professional. Lucie Green has made a big dent into this lack of information. I have really enjoyed reading her book. Her natural enthusiasm for the subject comes across in abundance, as it does on her tv appearances, making this book interesting and easy to read. Some of the subject matter concerns what are very complicated processes, but the author does well to explain this in terms that the layman to the subject can understand. It has certainly increased my interest in all solar matters, and I recommend this book to all with similar interests.

An Excellent Book

A must read for anyone interested in how the sun works. Written in everyday language with only 2 equations this should appeal to everyone.

Am about half way through this book and am thoroughly enjoying it. Lucie is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about her subject and I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested about our nearest star.

Illuminating and full of warmth!
