our sun


a: our sun ~
b: compost pile


"That doesn't really work though. People think the sun is like a continuous explosion. It's more like a massive compost pile. The energy density of the sun in the peak energy producing region is only around 276 watts per cubic meter. That's less than the energy density of the human body and about the equivalent of a compost pile. Compost piles and the human body don't produce any noise when they produce energy, I wouldn't assume that the sun would either."
