while we're talking about space ****;

the surface of the sun is so hot, that if you had something just the size of a pinhead as hot as the sun is, it would give you third degree burns if you were 150 miles away.

How can that be true when a lightning strike is 5 times hotter than the surface of the son?

Not true.

The temperature of the sun at its core is 27 million degrees, but only about 10 million degrees on its surface. The temperature of lightning most often given is between 50,000 and 55,000°F.

And besides, a lightning strike lasts a hundredth of a second or even less; it doesn't have time to burn

No the temp of the sun's surface is 6,000 kelvins which is about 10,000 F and lightning is about 30,000 kelvins which is about 53,000 F. Think about the size of a lightning strike compared to a tiny needle point, there's no way that someone could get a 3rd degree burn from just the tip of a only being 10,000 F.

oh woooooooow now I see what all the fuss is about. You're talking about the surface of the sun. I'm not, even though I wrote that. In my original comment I should've written the sun's core.


Sorry

maybe you got confused and thought about the Earth, the temperature at the inner core of the Earth is 5700 K

Central temperature: 1.571 x 10^7 K

Taken from NASA's factsheet about the Sun. I don't think I can find a more credible source
