apart from a few stars, most of the stars are so big that thousands of the Earths and, in some cases, even millions of the Earths can be packed inside them and leave room to spare.

2. with whom is the total number of stars compared?

The number of stars is compared to the total number of grains of sand on all the seashores of the world.

3. Do the stars come close to one another every now and then,?

No, the space is so immense and stars travel thousands of miles away from one another. So, it is a very rare incident for one star to come anywhere near another.

James Jeans believes that, apart from all impossibilities, such an incident did take place about two thousand million years ago. A star, wandering blindly, came close to the sun.

 When the second star came nearer, the tides raised by the star got bigger and the mountain rose higher and higher.

7. What happened when the star went away?

When the star went away, its tidal pull had become so powerful that this mountain tore into pieces and threw small parts into space which has been going around the sun ever since.

These pieces are called planets of the sun and our earth is one of the sun and our earth is one of them. These planets helped form the solar system.

9. Why is life impossible on the sun and other stars?

Life is impossible on the sun and other stars because they are extremely hot. That is why, these planets were also very hot ut, but gradually, they cooled down and one of them became fit for life.

These planets get the light and heat from the sun because they lost their heat with time and very little heat of their own is left now.

Outside these belts, life would be frozen because of its immense cold while it would bun up inside because of its immense heat.

According to a rough calculation, these narrow belts of life make less than a thousand million millionth part of the whole space.

22. How many stars have planets going around them?

Probably only one star of 100,000 has a planet going around it That is why the writer is so afraid of his future on the earth and calls its creation a mere accident.
