It is said that the human brain has a finite capacity to remember facts. That means if you're going to memorize a list of 100 facts about something or someone, then you'll forget 99 other facts. However, the following fifteen facts will be the only ones you need in your life. They are, simply put, true facts about everything under the sun and indeed beyond.
First, thesun itself: An ordinary star, it's actually a yellow dwarf that sits in a spiral arm that's kind of far from the center of the galaxy. It has been around for more than five billion years (since its formation in the very earliest days of ourgalaxy). If it was a human being, it would have a birthday on Saturday, July 19th, at 6:32 PM Eastern Time.
With that out of the way, we can now get started on facts about things under and beyond the sun.
