Sun, the ultimate source of power for everything in this solar system, regarded by many as the only god we can see, literally the focal point around which our world revolves. The USA, Russia and China have already started to plan how to make money from our celestial neighbours, namely comets and asteroids, even moon, perhaps someday other planets too example, Jupiter. It will not be a surprise if someday, our sun becomes a commodity for inter-galactic trade.In that case, what is the worth of this fiery ball?
What is the cost of our sun?
Since the sun is now a commodity, we will assume that whoever is selling the sun is smart enough to economize every drop of both - matter and energy that he/she/it can possibly squeeze out from this fiery ball.
1.Cost of all the matter content:
Sun has an insane mass of about 1.989 * 10^30 kg and is made up of elements like hydrogen, helium, oxygen, carbon and few more. Currently as of 2016, The matter contents of our sun alone, will cost the buyer an unbelievable 30,693,153 septillion dollars, i.e. 30,693,153,000,000,000,000 trillion dollars a detailed breakdown of which will be given in a chart below.
But we are not done yet.
2.Cost of all the energy content:
It is no mystery that our sun produces unfathomable energy. Per second it spits out about 3.8* 10^26 joules of energy. And this is a pure harvestable form of energy unlike coal or other primary energy sources here on earth. 100% of this energy can be used to generate electricity. On an average, considering both developed and developing nations, electricity per KWh costs about 7 to 12 cents. Within just an hour, our sun can produce electricity worth .27 to .44 septillion dollars i.e. 27, 00,0000,0000 trillion dollars to 44, 00,0000,0000 trillion dollars per hour.
Of course, it is a dynamic cost for the mass keeps on decreasing. But at the moment, the sun will cost a total of nearly 30,693,153 septillion dollars. There, you have it. Not too costly for a god eh?
Fun fact: if you stack 1 dollar bills worth 30,693,153 septillion dollars, the height of the pile will be 22.4 quadrillion times the distance between earth and sun.
