How does the sun generate energy?
The sun generates its energy from nuclear fusion, a process that releases energy at mass. To give you an idea of the scale of energy it can generate, a total of 173,000 terawatts (trillions of watts) of solar energy strikes the Earth continuously. That’s more than 10,000 times the world’s total energy use, according to MIT physics professor Washington Taylor.
