    "Something interesting about our Sun"
    It was interesting, informative, no bad feeling, no flaming so why - what did I miss

    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure , but I'm not a complete idiot - some bits are still missing

    I didn't see anything all that objectionable and usually we have light and kind moderation. Maybe our benefactor doesn't want AGW threads on the board? Could be from previous experience.

      George dislikes climate change/global warming/anything related threads.

        George is part of the team working on a method to blow up the sun.

        See.. the sun is hot... and heat causes global warming... so according to his logic blowing up the sun is the only solution.

        Oh and he wants it to be a surprise, that's why he closed the thread.

          The sun will turn in to a Red Giant and burn itself out some day that is a known fact.

              nope it is speculation, we do not know, (because we cannot observe)nor can we prove by experement... we think it might, or theory suggests......

                  It isn't specualtion. We observe other stars that are in the same category as our sun. We can determine their age by the spectral composition of elements which tells us what stage of stellar evolution they are in. The evolution of a star is determined by only one factor; it's mass. All stars follow an evolutionary path according to their mass called the main sequence. Depending on their age and the mass they started with they will eventually depart the main sequence in a predictable manner. For a star the size of our sun that includes a red giant phase during which it will blow off most of it's mass and then shrink to a cool dwarf star.

                  No need to worry though, it won't happen for at least 10 billion years.

                      I think the thread was closed because this is no longer the "Home Shop MACHINIST Forum".
                      It has become the "OT, OT, OT, OT" Forum.

                        I know for a fact that George doesn't like global warming threads. That is why he closed it.

                          I don't have a job now. No reason to think I will have one then.

                            The machinists I've worked with have a hard time staying on topic too, so it's not our merry little band!

                              I don't think you have to worry about global warming/end of world because of the snout ice effect.
