Joyce Ann Guzik of Los Alamos National Laboratory spoke about the sun to more than 80 teenagers at the Bradbury Science Museum Wednesday evening. Guzik’s presentation – titled “What if the Sun Stopped Shining?” – covered everything from the sun’s suspected origin to its projected demise.The fast-paced, information packed talk was part of the rapidly expanding Caf Scientifique program for youth, brought to Los Alamos and three other Northern New Mexico cities by Science Education Solutions President Michelle Hall.“These kids are just amazing,” Hall said, describing the youths’ mature demeanor and intelligent questions.Guzik agreed, saying she thoroughly enjoys talking with high school students and is impressed by their questions.“I always learn something from them,” she said, adding that she is excited about the subject of the sun and wants the teens to learn more about it.Gusik told the crowd the sun, made up of 73.2 percent hydrogen, 25 percent helium and 1.8 percent other elements, goes through a cycle every 11 years.In 2012, the sun will become more active, she said.
