      No need to worry:) For what we know of the sun, we still have 5 billion years before the sun get us problems.

      I don’t think so! But it is a really good question because without the sun we would have no energy. Trees produce the oxygen that we breathe but sunlight is needed for this process (which is called photosynthesis so without the sun we wouldn’t have oxygen!

      We have a few billion years before the sun’s source of fuel runs out and turns into carbon forcing it to swell up and possibly eat up earth and a few other planets!
