    Great information, thank you for the link. I did not know this was how the sun formed, fascinating.

    The Sun formed about 4.6 billion years ago in a giant, spinning cloud of gas and dust called the solar nebula. As the nebula collapsed under its own gravity, it spun faster and flattened into a disk. Most of the nebula's material was pulled toward the center to form our Sun, which accounts for 99.8% of our solar system’s mass. Much of the remaining material formed the planets and other objects that now orbit the Sun. (The rest of the leftover gas and dust was blown away by the young Sun's early solar wind)

    If you go to Youtube and either search via text, or orally, you'd be AMAZED at what's there to enjoy. Tons of stuff about the Universe, etc.

    I even found a video of a drive through my hometown of Lowell, MA. I have no clue why anyone would want to gopro through Lowell, but it was interesting to me to see how much its changed over the years. Oddly, the person taking the video began along the very route I used to walk to High School. A serious trip for me down memory lane.

    Yeah, I practically live on YouTube, I've got the app on my phone so I can get there quickly. It's unbelievable how much stuff you can watch, I've watched documentaries on all kinds of things, neanderthals, dinosaurs, space, sports, you name it. I'm watching a documentary soon on the Earth's core, a place that's pretty much impossible for us to get to, due to the heat and pressure, I can't wait to start the adventure!
