Mid-life crisis looms over Sun, study reveals when it will die

Carpe diem! Because the end of the Sun is near. According to a recent study, the Sun is having its middle age and it will die too. 

Be it mid-night blues or mid-life crisis, there are certain things that one just cannot escape. Well, looks like not just humans are dealing with it, even our Sun has to face it. According to the data published in the Gaia spacecraft, the Sun is going through its middle age. It is estimated that the age of the Sun is around 4.57 billion years.

The European Space Agency (ESA)'s space observatory has shared the information that could help determine when the sun will die.

According to the ESA data, the Sun is currently fusing hydrogen into helium and is rather stable now. However, the giant star will die too.

Scientists analyzed the data provided by the Gaia Spacecraft and they concluded that the Sun will reach its maximum temperature at around 8 billion years of age. After this, it will cool down and increase in size and thus will become a giant red star. Scientists said that at the age of 1011 billion years, the Sun will die.

ESA further said that the Sun will die when it will become a dim white dwarf.
