Solar energy comes from the sun
eieio
The sun is a big ball of gas
eieio
It generates energy called nuclear fusion

eieio
During nuclear fusion the suns high pressure
eieio
And hot temperature cause hydrogen atoms
eieio
To come apart and their nuclei to fuse
eieio
Four hydrogen nuclei fuse to become 1 helium atom
eieio
Some matter is lost during nuclear fusion
eieio
The lost matter is lost in space
eieio
Then it forms radiant energy
eieio
It takes millions of years for the energy to make it up to the solar surface
It takes a little over 8 minutes
eieio
To travel the 93 million miles to the earth
eieio
solar energy travels at 186,000 miles per second
eieio
Which is the speed of light
