Sun Light, Star Light…
Everyone is familiar with light. We could see nothing without light. Light waves illuminate, to varying degrees. The human eye can detect the light from a single candle, one candle power, in total darkness, at one million miles, and humans have poor eyesight compared to some other species. Light waves are produced by bio-luminescence, our Sun and all Stars, and artificially, or man-made. The one thing they all have in common is light waves, but only Stars emit light particles.
A light particle is a hydrogen atom, spewed out by all Stars. Light particles do not emit light waves. When a light particle impacts something, it explodes, emitting a light wave and heat energy. It’s equivalent to a single atom hydrogen bomb. If you’ve ever been outside, in direct sun light, you can feel the heat from the detonation of the hydrogen atoms on your bare skin. Too much Sun and you
get burned, a solar radiation burn, and possibly skin cancer. Natural light waves do not have the ability to cause a burn or skin cancer. Humans have concentrated light waves, which can cut through steel; I’m referring to laser light, but these are not natural light waves.
A light particle has kinetic energy and potential energy and after impact, it is no longer a particle and has a different kinetic energy. It’s like a hand grenade or fragmentation grenade. Pull the pin, throw the grenade. En route to the target, the grenade has kinetic energy, and inside it has potential energy. When the grenade detonates, it no longer is a grenade. The potential energy is released, becoming kinetic energy. If you don’t pull the pin, the grenade will not detonate. It’s the same with a light particle. If it doesn’t impact another particle, it remains a hydrogen atom. A hydrogen atom entering the Earth’s atmosphere will be slowed by friction and gravity and if it doesn’t impact anything, it will remain a hydrogen atom.
Light particles, hydrogen atoms spewed from our Sun, that don’t impact other particles, and by-pass the inner planets, are absorbed by the gas giant planets as they orbit our Sun. This has been happening since the formation of the planets. Jupiter will eventually reach critical mass, becoming a secondary Star, and we will have a short lived binary star system, compared to a primary Star, which is formed in a stellar nursery.
Light waves travel at 186,000 miles per second, but light particles travel at about 360 miles per second. I arrived at this speed because a Solar Mass Ejection takes approximately three days to travel the 93 million miles, from the Sun to the Earth. Light particles do not have the speed necessary to avoid being captured or detonated by one of the many celestial bodies in our solar system. Only light
waves leave our solar system, for the most part, and we can only detect light waves from other Stars.
The massive amount of light waves and heat produced by our Sun is from the massive amount of hydrogen atoms striking other hydrogen atoms while still on the Sun, and from the violent fission reactions, of the Sun, produced by a Natural Uranium chain reaction, creating all natural elements, after reaching critical mass at its inception, then constantly expelling undetonated hydrogen atoms, light particles, and other elements. Our Sun is converting matter to energy, in a nuclear fission reaction.
