You are here:

The Sun. Its beauty and power have inspired us since the dawn of civilisation. Set at the centre of our solar system, its brilliant light shapes our sense of time, our health and our environment.

People have worshipped it, lived under its illumination, tried to harness its power and uncover its secrets.

This is the story of humanity’s ever-changing relationship with our nearest star.
