Amazingly, if a hollow Sun was filled up with spherical Earths then around 960,000 would fit inside. The Sun’s surface area is 11,990 times that of the Earth’s!

Were you aware that most white-tailed deer live about 2 to 3 years? Maximum life span in the wild is 20 years but few live past 10 years old.
