Rotating Question Curious About Astronomy? Ask an Astronomer

If we invented special suits could we ever go to the sun?

Hi i am doing a report for my 6 grade science class. I was wondering if you could answer the following question?

If we invented special suits could we ever go to the sun?

I do not think that it will ever be possible to create suits to help us withstand the incrediable temperatures even near the Sun, so unfortunately I have to answer no to the last question. It would be cool though if we could!
