Here comes the Sun, and I say it’s alright. Depending.

Ah, the Sun. That massive radiant orb that looms over our everyday lives like a silent, judging doom that both warms our planet enabling life, but also would kill us if it had the chance.

And yet, in spite of its best efforts (and ours too, if we’re being objective) humanity continues its slow ascension of the Kardaschev scale. Which means that we’ll need to understand questions like those posed in the video below.

And while there is one result that is “exactly what you’d expect,” the whole thing is a pretty cool look at the different layers of the sun and their effects on our world. Check it out!
