Ten Things You Don’t Know About the Sun

Ten Things You Don’t Know About the Sun is a Discover Magazine article by Phil Plait with 10 factoids that, among other things, clears up common misconceptions about the sun.

For example, you probably won't actually go blind by staring at the sun, despite what you've heard on 30 Rock (such a solid show, how could they steer me wrong?!). Also, the sun is bigger than your average star, it converts matter into energy, and it's not actually yellow.

Also, this article reminds me of how much I hate click through layouts. I much much much prefer seeing everything in one page.

Also, that's it.
