The sun burns our bodies, that much we know. But have you ever stopped to wonder, why does the sun burn so brightly when the sky is blue and the earth is green? Have you ever wondered why it is so hot at noon in Africa when it is cold in Australia? How come the sun does not bother anyone else but you? When you are up high in an airplane, looking out at the ocean or at the top of a mountain can you see any difference in the temperature of the air around you?
We humans are one of the only animals that research this question, and why hasnt the sun burned us? Well for one thing it is very hot on the surface of the earth, even with the recent temperature record setting, and there is hardly any air around you. At noon it is near impossible to not be burning. This makes sense since the sun is the largest source of radiation around, and when it shines on you, it produces heat. But there is something really strange about this, if we were to go deeper into the Earth’s interior, we would find that the Sun would actually be glowing, like a diamond in the rough, and we might be able to see the structure from space.
But first we need to understand what would be caused if we went that deep. Basically we would need to use technology like space shuttles to take us to that faraway place where the Sun would be glowing in its true glory. However because we have been trying to send explorers to the Moon and Mars this seems to be a dream long gone. It also makes sense if you think about it for a minute, the moon is getting closer to the Earth every day, and it would be very hard for anything to make it safely to the planet, and especially when trying to transmit anything back down to the ground.
Something very interesting about solar flares and why hasnt the sun burnt us out is that they seem to follow a predictable pattern. There is a period of time during which the flare happens, and then a smaller one will occur just a couple of days later. During this time we do not hear much about it, or the predictions are not all that accurate, but after a while you look at your phone and see a few missed calls from major businesses due to these solar flares. One day you realize that the whole world is trying to hold phone lines open, and then the next, the major airlines and banks are calling their customers back, because there is a possibility that a huge explosion is going to occur with the structure of the planet. All this means is that with a very simple prediction, the entire stock market and even the weather is being affected by the predictability of these solar flares.
In addition to everything else that has been said, I would like to bring up something that was never discussed during this discussion. That is the fact that the flare itself can cause the material within it to move, and that in turn can have catastrophic effects on the surface of the planet. For example if one of these solar flares had occurred in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, which is a water body that is relatively near the surface of the planet, it would have been akin to an underwater nuclear bomb going off in the middle of that water.
Now remember, scientists tell us that these types of events are not likely to happen again anytime in the near future. But that doesn’t mean that we should not be worried about them, or wonder about why hasnt the sun burned. After all, scientists tell us that man made solar flares like these happen every few years. They are not likely to happen every minute, or every second. So the question remains “Why hasn’t the sun burned?” Is it because these explosions happen when man is least expecting them, or is there something else going on?
Well, believe it or not there is something else going on. You see, there is an unexplained anomaly involving the inner atmosphere of Venus. This is one of the planets closest to the Sun, and it seems to cause solar flares. Since there are no clouds around it, you can’t exactly say that it’s causing them. But it does seem to be the case that Venus has a slow rotation, which causes the wobble that we’ve been seeing in space for many years.
If you take a long enough time to analyze the information, you’ll find out that there is more than one explanation for all this. But one thing is for certain; scientists tell us that there is a low probability that we will ever see these solar flares occur again, because they happen too rarely. So the question still remains, “Why hasnt the burning sun burned yet?” And we will surely find out one day, hopefully before too long.
