What is a sunspot on the sun?
Sunspots: One interesting aspect of the Sun is its sunspots. Sunspots are areas where the magnetic field is about 2,500 times stronger than Earth’s, much higher than anywhere else on the Sun. Because of the strong magnetic field, the magnetic pressure increases while the surrounding atmospheric pressure decreases.
What is the surface of the sun like?
The Sun is a giant ball of plasma (electrified gas), so it doesn’t have a distinct, solid surface like Earth. Sunlight that is created by nuclear fusion in the Sun’s core (center) gradually works it’s way outward, colliding over and over with atoms in the Sun’s interior.
Does the Sun have a surface?
The surface of the Sun, the photosphere, is a 300-mile-thick (500-kilometer-thick) region, from which most of the Sun’s radiation escapes outward. This is not a solid surface like the surfaces of planets. Instead, this is the outer layer of the gassy star.

Why does my fart smell so bad?
Intolerance to food Food intolerance is a very common cause of bad odor flatulence. Typical conditions that can cause smelly flatulence include lactose and gluten intolerances. In both of these conditions, the body’s inability to break down lactose or gluten causes smelly gas to build up and eventually be released.
