The energy that escapes from the surface of the sun into space every second in the form of photons is a billion times more than the power produced by all the hydroelectric power plants in India in an entire year!
How is this energy formed in the stars like our sun? Will stars live forever, providing us not just with energy but with also almost all the elements that allow us to live like oxygen, calcium, and iron? In which chapters in school physics and chemistry can teachers introduce information about the extraordinary lives of stars to make the lessons more wholesome?
Join us as we explore the connection between the life of stars, the chemical reactions inside them, and the elements we are made of in an interactive discussion with Anand Narayanan and Saurav Shome.
The discussion will be in English.
