MAH | The Sun: the star of our solar system

June 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

What is the Sun and what is it made of? Just how big is it? How does it compare to the stars we see at night? How do scientists study the Sun? We’ll explore these questions and hitch a virtual ride on NASA’s Parker Solar Probe to find out what more we might learn about our closest star.
