Rotating Question Curious About Astronomy? Ask an Astronomer

How many Earths fit into the Sun?

My name is Josh and I am a fourth grader and I want to find out how many Earths fit in the Sun?

The Sun has a radius 100 times that of the Earth which means that about 1,000,000 (1 million) Earths would fit into the Sun!

By the way, take a look at the NASA Kids site. I think you might like it.
