Hottest takes in the solar system? Here comes the sun on this explainer, where Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice break down solar flares, sun spots, and all the things you thought you knew about the star at the center of our solar system.

How big is the sun? We wrap our heads around the scale of our universe and the role of the sun on our planet. If the sun were magically plucked from its spot, how long would it take for us to realize it? What is “solar max”? How to do sunspots work? What about solar flares? Can they break our satellites? We break down the mechanics of the sun’s interior, the merry-go-round effect, and the flipping of the sun's poles. All that, plus, what are deep sea fishes’ experience with the sun?
