Storyboard Text

  • If the sun suddenly were to disappear, all of the planets would retain their forward motion, causing the earth and all of the other planets to fly off into space.
  • However, it does take eight and a half minutes for sunlight to reach the earth, so we would have nine blissful moments of sunshine left.
  • The earth retains a lot of heat so although people would not freeze at first the temperature would quickly drop. After a week the temperature would drop well below 0F.
  • Of course, the sun is necessary for photosynthesis, so after the sun disappears, the plants are not able to make energy, this will quickly cause the plants to die. This will cause a chain reaction and without a food source many animals will begin to die, eventually, without a food source humans will die.
  • Eventually, the temperatures would get so low that layers of the ocean and the earth's atmosphere would freeze and the atmosphere would crash onto earth, releasing harmful radiation
  • While a few extremely inventive people may be able to survive after the sun disappeared, eventually life would no longer be able to exist.
