Millions of toddlers have probably asked this question, “Can we go to the sun?” Of course not. Then the bigger question follows it, “WHY?!?” The next time a toddler asks you this, be prepared to give an easy to understand answer by watching this video.

This video explains the physics behind why it is hard to crash into the sun. Minute Physics used animated pen and paper to illustrate the answer. The three-minute explanation was simple and easy to grasp, which made me hope that my physics teacher explained the subject matter using that simple technique.
