Our Sun is Perfect – It’s more perfectly round than anything else in the natural world
HA! Take that other universes! I realize the statement they are making is pretty bold considering how big the Universe is and how would we know it is the sun is the “most perfect” naturally occurring sphere.
I think this lends to a strange theory that I have always had about our Universe. I believe that we are just a tiny part of something much much bigger. Our solar system is just an atom is a large molecule. You know what else is perfect? Electrons. Just like our sun. Maybe it is an electron.

After 50 years of research, we’ve discovered a strange, beautiful fact about our Sun: it’s more perfectly round than anything else in the natural world. It’s not the roundest in a certain category; it’s just the roundest sphere there is. If it were a beach ball, The Guardian writes, it would be a hair’s width away from complete perfection.
The Sun is about 1.4 million kilometers across. The distortion at its equator? A mere 10 kilometers. The only thing we know of that’s rounder is a manmade, artificial silicon sphere.
