Almost certainly – and most likely before it got there because the sun is REALLY hot!!! Its surface temperature is ~5500 degrees celsius!!! and thats pretty hot (a hot day in the UK is about 24!) 🙂
So unless you found some material that could withstand this heat it would never get there! 🙂
Can you bottle sunlight? Can you keep sunlight in a jar or something like that?
how many degrees is the sun?
why is certain planets so far away from the sun? :D
What are the melting and evaporating temperatures of a diamond?
why is the sun boiling hot and how did the sun form
