If the sun was surrounded with mirrors and reflected all the warmth and radiation, what would happen if it were to heat?

I try to imagine it.And first what cabaretesquely to react with: ‘ If that sun is vain, then it will be very happy ‘.

More seriously.The sun is a complex sphere of predominantly hydrogen. Logically, because the gas cloud where the sun originated was also for the most part hydrogen.

The sun is what she is through three properties.

  1. Large mass, 99% of the mass the solar system is formed by the sun.

No nothing.

  • Gravity ‘ expresses ‘ the mass to the center, as with the Earth and all other celestial bodies.
  • Only the pressure and thus the temperature is gigantic. So great that…

  • … In The center hydrogen fusion takes place.
  • A process that only gets underway at 10 -20 million degrees and a bonecrushing pressure, which makes the atoms close up, with raging speed flying around. So fast that they cannot dodge each other, pop together and connect, helium, form, merge. Generating an enormous amount of energy.

    This enormous energy provides the pressure that prevents the sun from being squeezed together.Ok, if the hydrogen is in the centre, then there will be changes, but that is a chapter that only plays a part in 5 billion years. Not even now.

    The sun exudes energy.A lot of energy. The energy-rich photons make a trip to the surface, lasts 100,000 years (!) and hence out in 8 minutes to earth and in an hour or 5 to Pluto.

    A sun surrounding mirror, further denoted by mirror, changes that process.The sun gets almost all the radiation back, we get the stone cold and it also becomes Earth dark too. But also that is another story, life keeps up with it in a few weeks to months. Ok, some animals like the tardigrade (Bear animal) keep it out longer but that also comes to its end, after Jč°©ren, because that’s the Scamp, where Superman can suck a tip.

    The sun cannot lose its energy.Energy is added on the one hand, by the merger in the centre, but all energy is eventually returned to the sun through the mirror. And this creates a totally different balance. The photons are radiated and eventually return again. Closed system.

    First the outside of the sun will become warmer.Much warmer. That heat shifts itself slowly in the direction of the center. On the way the Heat meets the heat produced by the center. The heat rises into those some deeper layer. And so it goes further in the direction of the center. Like Gravity, it is the heat that crawls into the centre step by step.

    Eventually, count here at about 100,000 years, so you will have to be patient, the heat will reach the center.That center becomes hotter, the fusion becomes more intensive and the sun is going to swell. Bloating? Yes, because gravity cannot provide sufficient counter-pressure. That swelling continues, purely because the heat has caused a much more powerful fusion process. I assume that the mirrors make this possible, but they are also mirrors and they can do some.

    Again 100,000 years further and the sun is in fusion for 2/3 of the jet.Similar to a much heavier star actually.

    Ok, the story goes on, but the mirror is going on.In the end, the hydrogen gets into the deep centre and the next fusion cycle starts with the blistering heat. Where the sun normally comes to its end. The helium merges into carbon, oxygen and more. That is a much more intensive merger than that of hydrogen, the temperature rises to about 70 to 100 million degrees and the mass of the sun is insufficient to curb those forces. The Sun becomes Nova, maybe even supernova, although this is difficult to predict. The math shows me a little bit in the lurch, because gravity is way too low.

    But a hefty nova is also what you hear.The sun explodes, the mirror is in smithereens and the Stone Cold earth is suddenly removed from the tableau in an eruption of energy and mass emissions. Of the 5 billion years, it has now been squeaks in 2 -300,000 years.

    Do not do that mirror anyway..

    Nice question by the way:-)
