Data from the Gaia space probe reveals the moment when the Sun will reach its maximum temperature


Like every massive star that inhabits our vast universe, the Sun had a birth and therefore will have a death. This will be noticed when out of nowhere it begins to register temperatures higher than normal and then compresses and becomes a white dwarf.

This event of maximum temperatures was theorized by scientists from the European Space Agency (ESA), with data obtained from the Gaia space probe, which travels through the interior of our solar system.

First of all, it is important to note that the Sun we see every morning is surrounding the 4.57 billion years, according to Meteored review. That means that it is in a stage that means half of its useful life.

After that other amount of time has passed, it will be on its way, according to studies and observations of other stars in the Milky Wayis going to become, first a red giant and then a white dwarf, very dense and unable to give us energy for the development of life as we know it.

Our Sun now has two new sunspots of considerable size.  Which implies the risk of major cosmic storms.

Maximum temperature of the Sun

The aforementioned portal publishes that the ESA’s Gaia space probe collected data from other stars. And if it happens with ours, what they saw of other massive, this point of maximum temperature could arrive when the Sun exceeds 8 billion years.

Before it becomes a white dwarf, massive stars increase in volume and by this same process of unleashed temperatures, they become red giants. This should happen to the Sun after 11 billion years of life.

Later it will eject most of its components to enclose itself in a very dense white dwarf.

The Gaia space probe, with two integrated telescopes, is looking at everything. Their data determined that in the Milky Way alone there are 1.8 billion stars.
