Let’s imagine what would happen if our Sun disappeared from our solar system forever. Will Earth survive or things are going to super scary? Let’s find out… Beginning Of The End Everyone is spending their normal day to day life on Earth. We don’t even know what’s happening with out Sun. But after 8 minutes when the last light from Sun touches our surface, the Earth suddenly goes dark. Why it took 8 minutes to notice that? It’s the speed of light. Light takes 8 minutes travel from Sun to Earth. So the last light emitted from Sun took around 8 minutes to reach our surface. And do you know? Speed of gravity is also same as light. So the gravitational field will also affect after 8 minutes. Imagine a child swinging a 1kg ball on the end of a rope in a circular orbit and he suddenly cuts the rope. What’ll happen? They’ll move forward in the straight path. That’s what going to happen with our planets without Sun. We won’t be neighbours anymore. Everyone will go in their own direction on endless road in space. Struggling Life On Earth Image Source : SSEC.SI.EDU Without Sun, the photosynthesis process won’t be possible. Because of that trees will start dying. Without trees herbivores will start dying. No one will be there to filter out all carbon dioxide in air. So air pollution gonna be a huge problem. The amount of Oxygen will start decreasing. So that’s pretty much gonna mess up everything in the end. But, There’s another bigger problem, and that is gonna be temperature. Temperature will start decreasing a lot. After few months it’s gonna freeze most of the water. Because of it so many life on water will go extinct. Still the life at the bottom of the ocean will still survive due to the heat from Earth’s core. But not forever. We humans using our knowledge of Science can survive for little long. But still that’s not going to last forever. Dude, Will I able to use the Internet? No 🙁 All the satellites orbiting our planet need energy from Sun to function. Without sun there’ll be no power source for our satellites. So it’s the end of Internet for us. What about electricity? Solar powered electricity will die instantly. But we can still use waves to make electricity. But after water freezes electricity will be pretty much limited everywhere. So soon, Earth will just be an ice ball flying around in the space. Only thing that can save us is if we luckily come into the orbit of another solar system. But it’s damn risky and gonna take thousands of years. So possibilities of life on Earth without Sun is null. But guess what? These are all in our imagination. The possibility of Sun disappearing from our solar system is almost impossible. But if somehow our sun disappears from our solar system then that’s what going to happen to the life on Earth.
