Sun

Here comes the sun! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby spew dozens of fun facts about our very own star, the sun! You’ll find out about its huge size as well as just how hot it is, both on the surface and in the sun’s middle parts (let’s just say you’d fry if you got anywhere near it)! You’ll also discover what the sun’s made of, as well as how it got its start way back at the beginning of our solar system’s history. And, you can find out what neat things go on near the sun’s surface, while getting pointers about how to protect yourself from the sun’s powerful rays. This movie is solarly cool, man!
