Solar Interior
A cross-section of the Sun, showing the core, radiative zone and convective zone
Solar Interior
This is what you'd find inside the Sun and other stars like it. The centre is the core, where the Sun produces energy from nuclear reactions. Next is the radiative zone, where the radiation streams outwards. Then in the convective zone, the radiation rises to the surface in convective cells. Lastly there is the photosphere – the 'surface' if you like. T
