D: What’s the sky made out of?
Me: What do you think it’s made out of?
D: Water?
Me: The clouds are made of water. The rest is the atmosphere, made up of gases – nitrogen and oxygen.
D: What’s the sun made out of?
Me: I’m not sure, lots of gases – hydrogen and helium and carbon and something.
D: Is it fire, but melted and still hot?
Me: Yes, something like that.
D: Then why does it have bumps in? Is it where it shoots fire out?
Me: I have no idea… Ask your teacher.
