What prevents the sun from burning up in an instant?

The sun is powered by nuclear fusion. This requires high temperatures and pressures and only occurs to any significant extent in the core region of the sun. High enough temperature were initially achieved in the core of the proto-sun as a result of gravitational collapse. Some

What is the science behind a burn?

Heat damages tissues primarily by denaturing proteins.  When tissue is damaged by heat, heat shock proteins are transcribed or activated.  These proteins have a couple of different roles.  They can act as chaperones, helping proteins to fold properly.  The can also have transcription factor activity, turning genes on or
