    Was that bring the Sun to earth, or bring 'A' sun(i.e. star) to earth? Making us closer to the Sun won't help global warming too much, and bringing some proto-star here is unnecessary besides being beyond our most absurd flights of fantasy...

    If we put the sun next to earth will collide into the sun.

    What was the point of this episode? I mean, sure we learnt about the different layers of the sun but all the stuff of how bringing it to earth?Seems as silly of a question as what would happen if we try to connect Pluto and Mars?

    What if we found and retrieved space dinosaurs? Saurous's that literally live in the empty void of space... what if?What if we sent the great pyramids to the moon? What if?What if whales have feet and wear sombreros? What if?What if we ate rocks for dinner all while balancing upside down on our heads on concrete, while sleeping and listening to the flowers out front who are complaining about their fellow cactus neighbors?? What if?

    in fact if we bring a piece of the sun's core into the earth's atmosphere it would start to catch fire and we would all die without air

    in the ninja turtles cartoon episode "turtles to the second power"(originally aired on october 12, 1996), dregg wanted to do something very similar to what's in this video. he wanted to bring sunspots to earth in order to destroy many cities


    Nope , instead.Because it's neutron star sample its density and gravity would be so high that it will crash hole earth around it just like magnetic clay around magnet .
