How did hydrogen become the major component of our Sun?
Love the show; devote follower for years (and I envy your podcast ratings).
I'm confused by the formation of our solar system:
If a supernova left materials for our existence; what helped bring hydrogen and not other materials to the center of our system to form a new sun? Clarified: if all of the diverse elements were equally spread out in our system pre-formation, what separated hydrogen to be more prevalent in the future sun center for a new sun to form without all of the heavier elements- with these I would think a sun would collapse... so how did they separate?
Thanks for the clarification. I also listen to Naked Astronomy- if my question is sent there I'm a-ok.
