Upsize Sun

Exactly how BIG is the Sun that we are trying to stop?

For starters, the Sun makes up 99.8% of the total mass of the solar system. To give you a sense of scale on what that really means, check out the size of the Sun compared to that of Earth and the rest of the planets in the solar system. The proportion of size in the picture below is accurate, but the distances are not.

Our Sun is big. And that’s an understatement.
