How hot is the sun and,why is it so hot

Hi, Max. The Sun was formed from a huge cloud of dust and hydrogen gas. The hydrogen is the sun’s fuel, and at the very core, there are constant, hydrogen-fueled nuclear explosions. Even though the sun uses about 4 million tons of hydrogen every second, there is plenty of it. Scientists estimate there is enough hydrogen for the sun to continue shining for the next 5 billion years.

As you can imagine, it is hot inside the core of the sun. Temperatures may reach as high as 27 million degrees Fahrenheit.

I wrote a book called THE SUN which is probably in your school library. You can read more in that book about the star that is at the center of Our Solar System.
