The Sun, Our Star

What is the Sun? How big is it? How hot is it? What is it made of? Does it always look the same? Does it have an atmosphere? Helen will discuss all this and much more in her fascinating talk. Level: suggested age range 7-9 years


What is the Sun? How big is it? How hot is it? What is it made of? Does it always look the same? Does it have an atmosphere? Helen will discuss all this and much more in her fascinating talk.

Dr. Helen Mason works at The University of Cambridge on a space project called SOHO. This is a satellite that is used to study the light coming from the Sun. She has enjoyed working on many NASA solar space projects and has regularly visited the USA. She was fascinated by science and mathematics at school and always wanted to learn more about the stars. Now she knows a lot about our nearest star, the Sun, but there is still much more to find out.
