The sun is the center of our solar system and makes up 99.8% of the mass of the entire solar system. Without the sun, there would be life on Earth. The more we know about the sun the more we come to understand what an incredible resource it is and the better we're able to realize what role the sun has in satisfying our energy needs and meeting our goals for a sustainable future. The more we know about the sun the better equipped we'll be to design a built environment and infrastructure that is fueled by the clean, renewable energy of the sun.
