Current theory seems to be that the sun is a fairly pure ball of hydrogen gass with taces of helium and other elements. But some anamolies exist. What is all that helium doing after being produced from fusion? The stuff I have read seems to present helium fusion as the next step from hydrogen fusion, but wouldnt the helium start fusing with other hydrogen almost immediately? And then the product of that fusion would then fuse with hydrogen as well, and so on? There are photos of the sun's surface that show static features that dont change. This apparent surface is at an altitude that has a temperature between 4k and 5k degrees centigrade while altitudes above and beloew it run into the millions of degrees centigrade. Why is it so cool there? Arent there metals and compounds of those metals that have high enough melting points to exist under those pressures in a solid form? Also carbon formation is held to be the product of a star that fused atoms together, and the inner planets seem to have a lot of it. This would suggest that the planets of our solar system are the products of a super nova, and so the sun most likely is as well. Wouldnt there be a core of heavy metals then at the center of our sun that are remnants of that supernova? Or maybe some portion of a neutron star that is typically left? I have read of this 'Iron Sun' theory but it doesnt make much sense to talk about some universal magnetic field that causes the heat of the corona. Could some type of LENR process be causing the heat, originating in the fragments of the cooler surface ejected into the atmosphere? Or maybe along a hotter layer of the cooler surface? Just wandering thoughts.
