Do you think humans will over walk on the sun?
Mandarin. i was just thinking and thought how crazy it was that a person walked on the moon
and mars. i was not wondering if you think s person well not be able to walk on the
sun loin" know its really hot but um Mn! -ting " out in the wetter when the sun is like
30 degrees j bet they could do it

Why couldnt we? I mean, when there is night in America, the Sun is bright somwhere else,so if Nasa would send a man to the sun at a different country it might be possible, Neil Armstrong should do it since he has been to the moon and is an astronaut its appropriate that he would take the Sun aswell

Ali G - Buzz Aldrin
There's an Ali G trolling interview where he asks Buzz Aldrin The 2nd man to walk on the moon if man will ever walk on the sun and then asks "what if they went in Winter when the sun is cold?". He also asks him what he has to say to the conspiracy theorists who believe the moon doesn't exist.

It's possible. Just ridiculously impractical and impossible to achieve with our current level of technology.

I was thinking something along the lines of extremely powerful energy refraction fields or something like that. Assuming we want this method to be convenient and useful at any time for the average spacegoer.

Estimated time required for this to come to fruition: 400 years, at current level of technological advancement with no change in the curve.

I would like to clear this up for you, cause it's what sciencexplain does.

NASA plan to send a Solar Probe+ to the Sun and have it enter the atmosphere. It is projected to be possible by 2015, as long as it is so heat-resistant its almost impossible. Humans probably wouldn't be able to enter the atmosphere, regardless of protection. I don't know enough to explain why, but it just won't happen for a good 1000 years or so.

Just like planets, the Sun has an atmosphere. The atmosphere is super hot but cools as you go through it, kind of the opposite to our atmosphere where it's warmer as you travel through. I never really scienced a lot about the Sun so I don't know how to explain it properly and don't know if it is correct.

Are you sure about this?
It seems highly unlikely since the sun is made of gas....

however I do not know the density of this gas but given the high temperatures I doubt it'll be enough to actually walk on.

And then there's the weight of the sun I believe it's alot heavier then earth giving it a much stronger gravitational field.

How do you solve that?

If you can do that it's so very plausible.

You can negate the gravity by getting into orbit

You just need to find a solution to the pressure..... which is difficult because spaceships don't generally do well under pressure. (thank you futurama for this knowledge)

To be accurate, I was referring to a Titanium-Palladium-Iridium alloy and its possible practical uses. I haven't got anything back from anyone that isn't a variation of "It's expensive as hell". I can guess it'd be similarly tough, and intensely heat-resistant.

Don't get me wrong...it's an interesing idea... but the fact that the surface of the Sun is estimated to around 5778 K is just a bit terrifying. Currently the only materials that can withstand those temperatures are tungsten or certain ceramic materials, the ones that those cups in melting crucibles are made of, for example.
Tungsten is among the densest materials however. About 19.3 times denser than water, which is why it's quite impractical...al things considered...

Well...because I'm on such a school that teaches economy and logistics...I'd say: even if we could walk on the Sun, it would cost a ton... to just get there. I like the idea though... since the Sun is Hydrogen and Hellium... it could become a source for them... I'm just scared about the fact that the Sun is several 1000 degrees Celsius...and has a **** ton of gravity...meaning if we'd get to close...we could get pulled into it's center...which is alot hotter.

Ehh, don't worry 'bout it.

ahh interesting... I guess logistically it would be a nightmare...

Ahh but most spacetravel costs a ton I think it's an interesting idea to say the least.
I just looked up somethings as to how plausible it is:

equatorial surface gravity (g) for the sun: 274 m/s^2
same for earth: 9,81 m/s^2 the amount of force with which an object of with mass (m) would get pulled down can be calculated with F=g*m
the average human head weighs 5 Kg
on the surface of the sun it would feel asif it would weight 140 Kg.

I.E. it's going to break your neck so you'd need an exoskeleton to support your own weight. but you'd have to find a material that won't break under it's own weight and a really strong motery system.

the gravity also makes it really hard to get back but if you could find a way to harvest the hydrogen you might use that to fuel your escape rocket..

Getting pulled into the center is also a good point... the density of the core is about 50 times earths density so I think you would be okey seeing that the gravity is only 27 times as strong.

However I dont know what the surface pressure is and then there's the 380 yottawatts (3.8×10^26 watts) of heat energy bursting at you....

Hm. Perhaps a vacuum or an isolation field that would cancel forces acting on a body. Though the apparatus to house that would be ridiculously oversized.

Like I said, walking on or near the surface of the sun isn't the problem - it is in space, and in a monumentally high-gravity area, so I can presume that any system to keep anyone alive would be insanely thick and/or dense.

the vacuum would actually going quite a way against the heat by preventing conducting but there's still the radiation heat (which is probably like 99% of the energy)...

yes the high gravity is what I meant with the forces.
I also forgot that our bloodcirculation system works very poorly in high gravity, without a pressure suite a pilot will faint/die in corners and I very much doubt the g-forces are more then 4 g's 8 tops or so and we just stated the sun is 27 g.

I just realised there's one way to completely negate all the effects of the gravity field. By getting in an orbit, in other words circling around the sun (really really fast). do you two know anthing about orbits or want to know? I can calculate the lowest possible orbit tomorrow but you won't actually be walking (cause you have to go really fast).

Do you have any ideas as to how to creat an isolation field for the the heat?? Or other methods? Conductors, coolers?

We should get this to what-if.xkcd.com ! good plan? I could send it in tomorrow (it's very late here)

Hold on. The technology to create that kind of effect is still a long way off, and I don't think we can come up with that sort of technological breakthough over the course of one conversation. C'mon, it's practically energy shields.

My initial thoughts are that some kind of force or barrier would be necessary to counteract the massive amounts of heat and light that would be coming towards the object. This is, of course, handling only energy waves, not raw forces such as the pressure (0G/space? Heads will explode.) and the obvious gravity of the sun.

My thoughts were for the object to be sitting still, on the surface. However, an orbiting system would work as well. Maybe a dyson sphere-like system, solar energy-gathering sattelites at distances to the sun where the shine on the Earth would be negligible?

To clarify: My initial idea (the field-like thing) was just to counter the energy waves coming from the sun. The next one (the system to negate the forces acting on the object) was so that it could safely travel there.

Don't strain yourself in the calculation though. This is all just theory.
