The Sun Is Going To Turn Into A Giant Crystal Orb

< Go to Homepage Our sun will one day freeze into a giant crystal orb, joining billions of stars in the cold vastness of space.

New research reported by the Los Angeles Times reveals that billions of years after our sun boils its last bit of heat off, the giant star will shrink into a freezing, dead, crystal sphere.

Due to the rapid cooling process, scientists can only observe these dying stars for a limited amount of time.

Prior to this study, researchers were aware of the crystallization process but weren’t sure if energy was released during the formation.

Their findings have confirmed that the stars do in fact spit out one last bit of energy before they finally retire.
