Scientists have out when our Sun will . It won't any time soon. It will be in 10 billion years. The scientists are from the University of Manchester in the UK. They that in about 5 billion years from now, the Sun will turn into a "red giant". This is the scientific name to a star at the end of its life. When our Sun becomes a red giant, its centre will . Its outer layers will as far as Mars. This Earth will be burnt and disappear. After our Sun turns into a red giant, it will a planetary nebula. This is a bubble of gas and space dust. The scientists say no humans will be on Earth when the Sun dies out. Humans will in around one billion years from now.

The Sun still quite young in space years. It is just 4.6 billion years old. This means it is only around one third into its lifespan. Professor Albert Zijlstra, a scientist from the University of Manchester, what happens at the end of a star's life. He said: "When a star , it a mass of gas and dust into space....This the star's core. By this point in the star's life, it is out of fuel." He said it eventually turns off and dies.
