The Sun Is the Most Perfect Natural Sphere
Scientists measuring the sun were shocked to find it’s the most perfectly round natural object in the universe.
Until now experts have always assumed that the sun bulged a bit around the middle – making it very slightly flying-saucer shaped. But the bulge is so small that if the sun was the size of a beach ball, the centre bulge would be less than the width of a human hair. It’s the first time they’ve been able to take such accurate measurements.
