    I guess there's more than one way to scan a kit.

    I don't know, you would have to ask freaky the freak for the answer to that one. But NASA lies about everything, didn't you know that already? I must have been lying when I was working on Apollo Tracking and timing at Goddard Space Flight Center back in the day.

    My guess, and this is just a guess, there is not a whole lot of O2 to allow fire.....

    Not much O2 on the sun either.

    Never could figure that out.

    It's because the sun does not "burn" anything. The heat energy is released though atomic fusion.

    I read your post. It was easy.

    Actually, I'm not edumacated at all. In fact, I don't know anything. And I'm learning less everyday. I forget, but is there something I need to know more about that big ball of fire up there in the sky?

    From what we have figured out, it doesn't go out, it stays hot and will for a long time. That's what they tell me anyway. Sometimes there are black spots running around the surface, maybe it gets the Measles sometimes, maybe they are boils. I don't think they are ants.
