Looking Beneath The Sun's Surface

(*Question*) - "How did the sun create itself?"

Even though our solar system's sun is a staggering 93 million miles away, scientists here of Earth are earnestly trying to understand its overall makings from the inside out.

Through interviews, actual photographs from spacecraft telescopes, and CGI imagery - This educational documentary (from the NOVA Network) offers the viewer a fairly interesting look at the sun (which, without it, life as we know it would not exist at all).
