Sun^26

That post has nothing in common with programming or even computers but I was so excited when I discover things I want to write about that 140 chars of twitter wasn't enough for me.

The Sun is a star in the center of our Solar System Anyone knows that. But have you ever think about number '26' in Sun statistics?
  • Apparent magnitude of the Sun is -26,8
  • Mean distance from Milky Way 26,000ly
  • Galactic period 226.000.000 years
  • Radiant flux 3,827×10^26 W
  • Unicode of Sun symbol - 2609
  • Distance from Milky Way Equator - 26ly
  • Speed 260 km/s
  • Conversion rate of mass-energy 4.26 million metric tons per second
  • Mean mass loss in energy 26,732MeV
  • Total mass loss 6,5x10^26
  • STEREO observation mission starts at 26th of October 2006

Coincidence? Don't think so! :)

  1. I think that number 10 is more "SUN", just check this:

    Apparent magnitude of the Sun is -2,68*10
    Mean distance from Milky Way 26*10*10*10ly
    Galactic period 226*10*10*10*10*10*10 years
    Radiant flux 3,827×10^26 W
    Unicode of Sun symbol - 2609 (260,9*10)
    Distance from Milky Way Equator - 2,6*10ly
    Speed 26*10*10*10*10 m/s
    Conversion rate of mass-energy 42.6/10*10*10*10*10*10*10 metric tons per second
    Mean mass loss in energy 2,6732*10MeV
    Total mass loss 6,5x10^26

    10 is everywhere!

  2. ok, but '10' is so obvious. 26 is kinda special and unexpected in here:)
