ABSTRACT
This article provides information on the energy that the sun produces. All of our energy really comes from the Sun. The Sun is a big ball of gases, made up mostly of hydrogen. Inside the Sun, hydrogen atoms join together (through a process called nuclear fusion) and become helium. During this process, large amounts of energy are released. The energy from the Sun is stored in our food, which provides fuel for our bodies. The Sun also provides the energy stored in fossil fuels. Coal, petroleum, and natural gas are fossil fuels. When we burn fossil fuels today, the stored energy from the Sun is released in the form of heat.
